#SocialStudies v12.0

Welcome back, video junkies! 

This week, for your viewing pleasure: a collection of baseball clips, plus one very bizarre (but entertaining) mascot race. 

1. Crash course

Remember all those times when your coach hollered something about "communication" or "ya'll gotta talk out there?"  I think this is the precise situation those statement were designed to prevent. Luckily for these outfielders, it all worked out in the end.

2.  Must've been a long road trip

We’re all acutely aware of zany activities that occur in team vans, busses and locker rooms. The Harvard baseball team, apparently, is no exception. Enjoy this extremely macho cover of the Top 40 smash “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen. As of this morning, nearly 2.1 million people have witnessed this greatness.

 3. Gold glover

Good to know that this can happen at any age, right?  For the record, this feat has only happened fifteen times in Major League Baseball history.

4. Highlanders, Mariners and Bears, oh my!

The Mascot Run has become must-see at the annual Algonac Muskrat Relays. Here's the 2009 version; the latest was run last weekend.

Does your team behave oddly on team trips? Haul the FlipCam out and film it!

We’d love to show it off here on #SocialStudies.
