Don't give Maria a hard time!
Mon Jul 6, 2009 12:00pm

Joey, Joey, Joey. Did you say "May have more stamina?" - give birth and then we'll talk. And if the dear men in our lives didn't act like Helen Keller in drag - we may not have to repeat things ad nauseum. But beyond that, let me say this, I have said quite truthfully that I know nothing of the sport. However, I do think that I know why the women's field is smaller and the fence closer. The fence is closer because there's generally no concern that the players will want to leap the fence and kick someone's butt for having thrown things (and insults) at them. And . . . the field is smaller for two reasons: 1) women don't seem to need the elbow room necessary for all the physical "adjustments" men seem to have to make just before they pitch, catch, hit, and/or run. 2) Additionally, I cannot remember a single time that I saw a woman, on the field, spitting half of her lung across the field. Hence, the smaller field. I rest my case.
