Quite the “match” down under this morning


The photos we use here at HBT come from Getty and the Associated Press for the most part. We get them from an archive in which the photos appear with captions and descriptions already supplied. They’re usually straightforward. “Joe Shlabotnik fields a ground ball during the Mudville-Hooterville game in Hooterville Stadium on June 5, 2013. Hooterville, Nebraska. (Getty Images).”

The ones coming in from Australia this morning are pretty fun. Take this pic:


Here’s the caption.

A baseball “match.” That’s just splendid. We should start using that.

Trivial? Absolutely. But it made me giggle.
