The Bullpen Bench at Jacksonville

At Jacksonville Suns games, impudent children are shamed, much like Hester Prynne, with Logan Morrison jerseys.

One thing separating our summertime diversion from the lesser sports is diversity of setting.  Baseball parks provide variety in the form of varying outfield and foul territory dimensions.  Such variety keeps the sabermetricians busy with their slide rules and gum erasers, but for most fans the appeal is different.

One appeal is that time spent simply talking about those nooks and crannies provides our stomachs respite from the gaping maw of our insatiable appetite for Cracker Jack; wet, steamy peanuts; and all manner of sweet delights found at the confectioner’s table.  More importantly, these jutting irregularities allow us to appreciate the comical hardships endured by athletes suffering errant ricochets and, at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville, unsupervised mouthy runabouts in close proximity to the home team’s bullpen.

The BBB documents below the effrontery uttered by those willful little hellions:

“Hey, can you hear me?”

“I bet I could throw faster than you.”

“When the game is over, you guys wanna come over and play Xbox?”

“When is the game gonna be over?”

“Hey, can you hear me?”

“My sister says you’re not really that cute.”

“My mom says you have a flat butt.  She calls you Mr. Flat Butt.”

“Hey, can you hear me?”

“Can you teach me to spit like that?”

“Is this the World Series?”

“Hey, can you hear me?”
