I think you can only hypothetically "play ball" in Deschutes County because they don't have any players or team sponsors. Or umpires. Other than that, they are all set though.
this is a great blog--I'd like to see a sister blog--Unnecessary Italics.
it's never just a game for Ron or Scott.
I don't really know anything about baseball, or grammar really. Wouldn't this be proper since it is making reference to the phrase used to start baseball games?
^ If it was a pun, people will often do something like that (though I posit that it's probably not a very good pun if you have to draw attention to that). In this case, they definitely are using "play ball" because it's what is said at the beginning of a baseball game, but they are also asking you to, literally, play ball.
