You just have to run faster.
Aah….the intricacies of Calvinball (or in this case, Hobbesball).
I think Calvin may be right on this one…If you have to run a marathon to get to first base, then the bases may be too far apart!
I wonder how many more bases there are until home plate.
Ouch – the game has been debased!
You invented the game, Calvin.
This is like how the Red Sox played yesterday.
He looked at me! He saw me watching him! It’s like I’m real!
Calvin needs to refuel with another bowl of Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs.
Hit the ball a little farther, Calvin.
Calvin lives in a very interesting neighborhood. There are sidewalks and buses on school days; and other days there are streams, fences, ditches and so many other challenges. If he doesn’t grow up to be an astrophysicist, maybe he will be a Navy SEAL. Probably not a baseball player. Guess we’ll never know what’s in his future, because, sadly, he will never grow up. Maybe someday Mr. Watterson will give us his opinion.
I love that the sound of an out is “doink”
We used to set up our croquet games like this. Great fun.
YER OUT. The next base is 100 yards apart
The placing of thirty-third base is what bugs me.
Apparently the bases are too far apart at Yankees Stadium, at least for the Rays and Astros.
If he’d only exercise his brain like that.
It was a close play at the plate, assuming that’s home plate.
Wait till we set up the football field.
Baseball cross country mashup.
Baseball cross-country mashup.
Calvin should be in great physical shape.
I’ve been reading this strip daily for something like 30 plus years at this point and the longer I read it the more I come to appreciate Waterson’s artwork. Each of this panels really conveys the emotion and speed that Calvin, from the angles of his arms and body, to the looks on his face to the dust clouds behind him. Really well thought out and brilliantly executed. Everyone raves about Bushmiller but to them I say “Pffft, check out Waterson”
Real tigers are lucky to get 1 out of 10 tries.
Calvin did try very hard.
Atta boy Hobbes, show ‘im how the game’s played!!!
