Useless Information

I have a book of useless of information and in honor of baseball and the cubs doing so well I decided to list some interesting information about baseball:

**** 56 million people go to a major league baseball game every year

**** A baseball has 108 stiches

**** Babe Ruth wore a cabbage leaf under his hat to keep his head cool. He changed it every two innings.

**** Before 1859, baseball umpires used to sit in rocking chairs behind home plate

**** The first formal rules for playing baseball required the winning team to score 21 runs.
