    That outfielder would have had a better chance of catching the ball if he had used his glove. He’s lurching around out there like he’s drunk.

    I’m having a hard time cracking the code of the explosion lines in P3. Did the fielder run into the fence or did the ball hit him in the right side? Oh wait, I know! Did his appendix burst? Is that it?

    “Lots riding on these last two games”? The school’s double-play record simply can’t be construed as that big a deal, even in a town like Milford, unless Alan Trammell and Lou Whitaker played for the Mudlarks.

    Are these summer league games now? Is play downs before district or district before play downs? I’m confused. How did the graduations go?

    Everyone is enamored with the school double play record, which of course is the most coveted record there is. In P3, what the hell was that outfielder doing? Did he leap at the fence only to have the ball hit about knee level?

    And P1 maybe answers a question I was planning to ask. Do they have “playdowns” in baseball? I don’t think so, I don’t remember that phrase being used in this strip for baseball. What’s the deal with “districts” – that’s like…normal!

    I agree with Chip. That guy in P3 does look a little drunk and I’m afraid he might have taken a few sips from Marty Moon’s special thermos during an interview.

    I think I may have to stop reading the comments on this particular comic. They’re becoming as snarky and rude as the ones on Comics Kingdom. I could say that if you don’t like the strip, who’s making you read it, but for what? You all come back every day, anyway, just to b!tch and gripe about the artwork, the plot, etc., because that is what you live for, that’s how you get your jollies.

    And just for the record, BitsySwill (not a typo), those “explosion lines” are where the ball bounced off the fence, you a-hole!

    High school graduations usually take place around Flag Day, which is still 8 days off.

    I think it looks more like he ran into the fence.

    Could be that it’s short for “district playdowns,” much like we might think of the semifinals in the NBA or NHL as the “semis”.

    That’s not drool, that’s the cleft in his chin.
