A Panamanian friend of mine asked me the other day why I liked baseball. I tried to explain that it was one of the few sports remaining that average size people played. Basketball has seven foot giants playing point guard. Football is populated by three hundred pound Sumo wrestlers, and even tennis is becoming a tall person sport. Baseball, on the other hand, is still played by average size athletes. Stars like Derek Jeter, in my opinion one of the best in the game, is six foot tall. Carlos Diaz, the Panamanian catcher for the Phillies, is five foot eight. Rodeo stars are for the most part average or smaller. Bronc and bull riders are usually five foot eight and weigh around a hundred and fifty pounds. Boxing leveled the playing field a century ago with their weight classes.
The world series is the end of MLB in the US. However, in Latin America, the season is just beginning. I'm able to view baseball from most latin countries on TV until mid-December. That's when the Panamanian league begins. Most games are broadcast on local TV and of course our local Chiriqui team plays their home games in the stadium not far from my home. I plan on attending most of them this year.
