This change will affect the game in many ways that previous posters have mentioned. The ball will have less "bite" on breaking balls but will have less drag allowing the ball to maintain much of its speed while passing through the strike zone. Pitchers will adapt, especially breaking ball pitchers...

I grew up outside BR, stationed in Montgomery while in the Air Force, and worked and live just outside Jackson now.
BR hands down is the best. It's all about the people. If you can't have fun in BR with those semi-Cajuns you're jacked up. As far as aesthetics none are very nice. I'd go with...

| Movie/TV Board|| re: Pick my next show to binge watch - Topisawtiger on 1/16/15 at 5:19 am|
For a short one I'd recommend Firefly. It's only 14 episodes and easily the best "sci-fi" series out there. (no aliens in it at all) After you finish watch the movie Serenity which is a follow-up. It is on Netflix if you have that.
You will not regret it. Enjoy....

I think he is a good player, but it is between Harris and AJ. If they aren't a FB, when has Miles ever given an offensive salmon a fair chance? He never mentions them unless in jest. Sure wish he would open up competition to everyone, legitimately. ...

My wife woke up one night with something crawling around on the bed. (I was out of town working) It got up to near her head and she smacked it against the wall then jumped up and fliped on the light. It turned out to be a flying squirrel. She chased it all over the house, it ended up sitting on ...

My wife and I tithe and have for years. We have been truly blessed in our earthly lives, and no, tithing won't get you into heaven. But if you are a true follower of God you will tithe. It is not something we really think about anymore, it is part of life for us. We treat it like any other bill,...

Putin is having problems due to the price of oil being way down. That is due to all the production from fracking and such in the U.S., of which yo man Obama fought tooth and nail.
Cuba. What? Same ole same, he just wants to say he did something about it.
