The Cardinals have now gone 291 at-bats without hitting a home run. The Royals have only hit nine this season. Both teams are at the bottom of MLB at 29th and 30th in number of home runs hit. Perhaps with weather warming up in St. Louis this weekend, the Cardinals will see the bats come around.
So, why the picture of the beach with this story? My son was driving to a tennis tournament and texted (he wasn’t driving) that he and some of the guys on the team started having one of those discussions that hops all over the place when they came to the question. How much sand is there in the world?
I have to give my son some credit…when he texted me the answer he put it in terms my mind could understand by drawing a comparison to March Madness.
