Two Tell-Tale Signs Of A Casual Baseball Fan

1) They ask on a Saturday if there was ‘a game’, last night.

For Example:

Scene: Saturday Morning

Joe Schmoe: Did the Yankees play last night?

Only days of the week a Major League Team will have off is Monday and Thursday. Unless it’s due to weather or some other unforeseen cancellation.

2) They constantly refer to any and all player acquisition/movement as a “trade”.

For Example:

Jane Schmoe: What did you think about the Yankees’ CC Sabathia trade?

A player can switch teams in several ways, almost all of which do not involve a trade.

Not saying anything is wrong with people or casual fans who make this mistake, unless they CLAIM to be a “HUGE FAN”- BUT, it is a common mistake that is a tell-tale sign that someone isn’t too in to baseball. If you find a person who claims to be a “HUGE FAN”, who makes these mistakes, perhaps getting him a different color hat for his next birthday would be appropriate.
