High & Outside: The Pizza Box Strike Zone

Last week, my softball season kicked off. It’s a pretty serious New York City league — competitive games on some of the city’s nicest fields officiated by real umpires. Pretty much everything you’d expect from a top notch league. Well as it just so happens, there was one thing missing on opening day. We had uniforms, balls, bats, bases, mitts, and everything else we needed to play… except for… home plate. As you might have guessed, this was problematic.

The only white, somewhat pentagon-like item we could muster up was a pizza box. So although the strike zone might have a little bit larger than regulation size, it still sufficed. Which leads me to think that they should do away with home plates in my league and use pizza boxes each week.

About I Dream Of Pizza

Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I've chronicled my pizza eating adventures in New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza -- the web's most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
