    why do we play baseball from right to left when everything else we do is from left to right?

    We read and write from left to right, type, and do many more things from left to right.
    Are baseball and racing just a little backwards? I think so. No wonder the public is so confused. I guess ol' Abner was a little backwards too, along with the "Rednecks that invented all those left turns on the racetracks.

    Your sense has never thought enough about left and right standards.
    Where do you come up with your 99.99% stats?

    "No wonder the public is so confused"

    Do you consider yourself to be all the public?

    Baseball and racing has never confused my sense of left or right or anything else for that matter. I can say with almost certainty that 99.99% of the "public" will agree.
    It depends on if you are right brain or left brain in how you determine things should be.
