Sports Media Spotlight: Foolish Baseball

Over this past season of the MLB, my appreciation for Baseball has grown a great deal. One of the biggest reasons for this is Foolish Baseball. Foolish Baseball is a youtube channel and Twitter account that strives to tell exciting stories about baseball history using statistics in an easy-to-understand and entertaining way. Foolish Baseball calls the series of videos about Baseball, Baseball Bits. These Baseball Bits use a retro 8-bit theme to tell a story about a topic in baseball history. Here are a few of my favorite videos:

A video about perhaps the most remarkable pitching inning ever, but not in the way you would expect.

An interesting study about a player that, on the surface, may seem below average but excels in one vital area.

For someone too young to see Barry Bonds live, this great video encapsulates Barry Bond’s greatness in four plate appearances.

I hope you all can grow your appreciation for the game of Baseball and its illustrious history like I have through Foolish Baseball. Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
