That ball is juiced!
At least they’re not playing the British Commonwealth’s favourite sport cricket: the ball is as hard as a rock (well, cork and leather, but you get the idea). What I mean is, can little Calvin even hit a cricket ball (of that material) that far?
It’s called “Calvinball”, but it doesn’t say what kind of ball is needed.
If that’s what Calvin does with a tennis ball, imagine Mike Trout
Hobbes is lucky it wasn’t a golf ball; they go even further.
Wait until Hobbes gets up to bat.
Maybe baseball would be more exciting to watch if they used those balls!
Hey, don’t knock it completely, Hobbes. Tennis-ball cricket is a sport by itself in India.
I live in the Great White North. Try it with a frozen Tennis ball.
Not your typical Little Leaguer.
giving new meaning to the phrase “WALK-off” home run!
Gasp A bat flip and a casual walk of the bases on an inside the park homerun… you are a mean one Calvin.
Where’d they find a real home plate?
No, it wasn’t the dinner table.
Hah, we used unaltered tennis balls for street hockey. Sometimes our version of a slap shot was to dribble the ball up in the air and take a baseball swing at it.
Try playing wiffle ball with a base ball
Use a wiffle bat. That’ll even things out. Worked for us as kids.
That is funny.
We used to play yard baseball with tennis balls. Honestly, they really don’t usually go that much further than baseballs. Unless they went into the road and got hit by a truck. I don’t recall if we ever found that ball. If you figured out from that bit just WHY we used tennis balls instead of baseballs, you are a smart person.
LOL at Calvin’s face and pose in the last panel!
Pitch him a hairball Hobbes.
Hobbes needs a bath. What fun that would be to watch, considering my wet-cat’s attitudes when I was a boy.
Super Balls and golf balls go farther.
When we lived near the river, a baseball hit into the swamp was an automatic strike; with game on hold until we retrieved the ball.
Poor Hobbes, I love you!!
Let him use the tennis ball Hobbes. When it is your turn, break out the superball! Calvin won’t believe the first hit!
It’s refreshing to see Calvin oneup Hobbes in a sport for a change.
We used to use tennis rackets to play Badminton…..went through a lot of shuttlecocks that way…..
Calvin, that’s mean. I hope that Hobbes hits a home run too.
Probably a tennis ball goes farther/faster when Calvin hits it, but I suspect that if a serious baseball hitter did it, the tennis ball would just rupture and flutter a little ways. New meaning for a pop up fly?
