I don’t even understand baseball

I’m Australian. I don’t like or understand baseball. I don’t even like or understand cricket, Australia’s baseball. But I do like and understand Rhea Butcher. This podcast is so soothing and compelling. It might even make me like baseball (even if I refuse to understand it).
