I view baseball Opening Day as the same as Christmas morning. It is one of my favorite times of the year. So, as we approached the 2022 Opening Day, I did a countdown, sort of like an advent calendar, but instead of a little toy behind each flap on a box, I posted a new link to some of my favorite locations on the internet.
I was exploring Reddit a bit more than usual and I stumbled across a few interesting baseball subreddits I had not seen before.

I am not sure I would have labeled this as the Craziest Endings in Baseball History, but they sure are entertaining.
When I was a kid, I remember my physics teacher telling my class that if somehow you could throw a curveball in space, it would go in a full circle back to you, basically hitting you in the back.

At its heart, it is a group of individuals that just love this game and look to add to it through research and statistics and their depth of knowledge about the history of the game.
