TAKE ME DOWN TO THE EYEBALL GAMEPosted October 5 2018 by Saucy Fish Co.
After a long summer of baseball, the season reaches its climax with the World Series in October. So, why is a site that’s rather obsessed with fish about to start talking about batting averages and MVPs?
We’re not obsessed, but we’d just like to point out a rather curious fish/baseball connection. One that goes beyond the fact that many famous ball players seem to have marine-related surnames: Sid Bream, Chester Guppy and Bobby Sturgeon all instantly spring to mind.
Did you know that, back in the old days of baseball, the ball itself could contain a fish eye? The balls were hard to come by and people had to improvise by wrapping an object with yarn before stitching a piece of leather around the orbs. Galvanized rubber hadn’t been invented back in the 1840s. Although bullets were sometimes used instead of eyeballs, they were in high demand for shootouts at the local watering hole.
So America’s game only really got going thanks to our friends in the sea. Why not celebrate with a little bit of fish as you watch the World Series this October? Here’s a recipe that’s perfect for putting on crackers when you’re snacking between innings.
