baseball talk and my abysmal baseball knowledge

I got two ARC's from HarperCollins: one about dogs and one about baseball.

They were both pretty good, actually. I learned a lot about weird dog breeds and famous baseball players. Can you believe that until now I didn't know that Babe Ruth was a pitcher? I don't really know what I thought he was...just a hitter, I guess...or a candy bar... lol. And out of the other famous baseball players, I had only heard of one other: Jackie Robinson. Because everyone knows him...right?

Hey, I didn't know he was a pitcher until just now. :)

I agree with cuileann. I was just too ashamed to say it. :)

Whew! At least I'm not the only one.

*grins evilly* I did know that, all thanks to a great YA book I read a few years ago...if only I could remember the title.

Oh, yeah, I'd only heard of Jackie Robinson, too...

I think everyone knows him.
