A beautiful baseball tradition - Around the horn

A couple years ago I went to a Salt Lake City Bees game with my girlfriend. I explained to her that the players throw the ball around the infield after an out with less than two out and nobody on. I explained if it was a strikeout the catcher threw the ball to the third baseman, and then around the infield. Also I explained how the third baseman always caught the ball last and flipped it to the pitcher.

So the entire game she watched with great interest after every qualifying out to see what the players did. She had been to other games before, but never noticed this phenomenon. It certainly made the game more fun to watch.

What is better than watching an "Around-The-Horn" is participating in it. From the lowest levels to the majors, youngsters and profressional are participating in this time honored tradition with enthusiasm.
