What's The Count

 

The 2015 Red Sox continue to amaze in regards to essential things they still can’t keep track of. Having attended a game on Friday at Fenway Park (7/3/2015 if you’re keeping track), I saw two things I’d never seen before in a professional baseball game:

1) A batter refused to take first after ball 4. (Refused is a strong word: Hanley Ramirez stepped out of the batter’s box to prepare to receive another pitch because he had no idea that he had already seen 4 balls).

2) Later in the game, with two out and the Red Sox right fielder at second, a routine ground ball to short resulted in an out at first, retiring the side. But the player at second, Alejandro De Aza, sped off to third base anyway, setting off a bizarre chain of events in which the Astro first basemen, apparently wondering if he had lost track of outs himself, hurled the ball across the diamond to the third baseman, who must have similarly figured he had miscounted outs and dutifully applied the tag.

On a positive note, I had excellent seats!
