“Philip Humber pitched a perfect game for the White Sox yesterday,” Admin says.

“Very exciting,” says Spence. “Only the 21st time in the whole history of the game.”

“What do you think is more rare – the perfect game or the unassisted triple play?”

“Let’s go with the latter.”

“Correct. Only fifteen times.”

“And how different they are in terms of dramatic structure. In a perfect game the suspense just builds and builds, so you’re holding your breath on every pitch. An unassisted triple play happens so fast you’re not sure what you saw.”

“Just part of the endless fascination of baseball.”

“No doubt about it. But how much sense do you think this conversation would make to someone in say, Slovenia?”

“What are you saying? No baseball in Slovenia?”
