I don’t know a lot about the game of baseball. I played it for about 4 weeks when I was in Highschool, but got fed up with having to learn the secret codes. In America, however, baseball is big. Millions of fans, millions of viewer for even the most trivial tv show to do with baseball, millions of statistics to keep track of and millions of dollars earned by baseball’s biggest stars. Yesterday the San Fransisco Giants beat the Detroit Tigers in the best of 5 series and won the 2012 World Series.
