Three strikes and you're out!
Four and you will most likely be somewhere in the area north of Germany
and west of Finland. That's right, it's everyone's favourite country to
make fun of, Sweden!
The biggest confusion seems to be simply about the bases. It was, in
fact, so hard to figure these out that the Swedes invented a variant of
baseball with only one base that effectively struck out all runners. Unless
they were at the cones. It is rather weird how the addition of even more
geometric shapes somehow made the game simpler. As it stands, playing
with four bases leads to an entirely new dimension of giant issues, with
nobody knowing where to throw the ball, regardless of it actually being
quite simple. There is just something about that whole order thing that
seems to be quite impossible to grasp. Not that I'm complaining, it brings
about quite a few homeruns through sheer confusion.
Yet there remains more confusion to be cleared out, such as points. You only get one point for whatever you do, something the alternate version corrected by making a homerun worth four points, instead of a measly one and some glory. Or what about the fact that a really bad team can spend the entire game out on the field, or.. well, you get my point. All in all, maybe Swedes should just stick to hockey.
