I mean, I know the basics on how they work enough to watch and understand what’s going on, however, I’ve never really learned to appreciate the inner workings of the game. That’s all changed since watching The Sportys.

From the site: “The Sportys is a DVD series featuring a team of lovable animated characters being taught about baseball (such as strike vs. ball vs. fair vs. foul), teamwork and sportsmanship by the voice of Academy Award nominated actor Michael Clark Duncan as “Stitch” the ball. The series will educate kids ages 3-11 about the fundamentals of baseball in an entertaining and fun way.”

I watched the DVD with Girlie Girl and even though she’s not into sports either, she actually enjoyed watching all the animated characters have fun playing Baseball. She even learned a few things along the way like the difference between a foul and a strike ball.

She may never actually play Baseball but she did learn to appreciate the game thanks to The Sportys DVD.
