Why do people seemed so shocked to hear I enjoy watching batting practice?

I always have. I purposefully finished pre-game responsibilities early to watch it (much to a certain coach’s chagrin) but I like getting to the yard early to see it.

People are consistently floored to hear this, as if I’m bs-ing them. I get that I’m a female and it is out of the norm but come on, people. Give me a break. Girls can like BP too.

Sidenote: I was questioned twice as to why I was “here so early” and certainly I must be “waiting for someone on the team.” Nope, assclown, just like to see how guys in the majors swing it before playing.
