    Id imagine kids would gravitate to the team having all the fun and showing comrade.

    The unspoken rules of baseball should be tossed in to the dusty ditch. Bat flips, showmanship... bring them all on.

    Except for timing pitches in the on deck circle. If a kid does that he deserves every beaning possible

    The opposing coach would definitely thank you.

    No wonder he passed on playing for the team that paraded around a giant stuffed Hebrew.

    I still don't understand why Puerto Rico has their own team in the WBC. It's a U.S. territory, and they're U.S. citizens.

    Still not a state. They compete on their own in the Olympics as well.

    My kids haven't heard that emotional reactions are wrong and will really strike a pose after hitting a big shot to win a game or whatever. Then they'll shake their opponents' hands and their coaches' hands and say, "good game." We're Irish, tho, not some WASPy uptight assholes.

    Almost as rewarding as when the White Sox win the BP Crosstown Cup. :soexcited:

    The US was doing the same; they had that bald eagle statue thing that they were all dancing around. I thought this was a great tournament. Trout has already said that he will play in the next one and I can't remember who it was but some old timer tweeted that in 2021 the US will have the best team to ever take the field.

    Yeah uptight WASPs don't get that emotions and sportsmanship are different things. You can show passionate and still be a good sport. The NBA has probably the most celebrating type stuff and yet before and after each game the plays all fist bump and bro hug each other.
