Check out this strange version of baseball from Finland.

I have absolutely no idea what is going on... though I want one of those gloves.

Wikipedia has a pretty good explanation of this- check out the field diagram http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pes%C3%A4pallo

Yep, I had a look at it. Still, it would take me at least an afternoon of playing it to get the rules straight. ;) Then again, I'm never going to Finland.

But get two gloves and then you could pick your peppers. Ha

I already have some ripe piri-piris. My Florida Wild (Calusa Mound) are also starting to ripen. It is going to be a good summer...

I can't afford two gloves. One will cost me $200US plus shipping from Finland. ;)
