This past week I was sitting at home flipping through the TV channels, and I found myself involved in the first round of the Home Run Derby contest. The rules to this game are very simple; the players hit as many home runs as they can in a specific amount of time, and the players with the most home runs move onto the next round. It sounds simple, right? However, the further the players advance, the more tired they become, and I can only imagine what the players’ arms feel like when it gets down to the final two contestants..
As the rounds moved along, I really began watching and listening to the sounds of the game. The sound of the ball coming off of the wooden bat had such a nice “crack” or “knock" to it. (The cheering from the crowd as the ball cleared the fence was another sound in itself.)
