But, but...baseball doesn't have milk bottles behind home plate. What are they for?
They're instead of the catcher's hands. The batsman is out if they get knocked down.
And, a baseball game lasts a long time, but it's usually over in a day! A Cricket game goes on for like a month.
That's the high scoring. How long does it take a baseball player to score 100 runs? A first-class cricket player has a good hope of doing that in a
morning. American footballers claim their game is better than soccer because of the higher game scores. So apply the same logic to baseball and
An ordinary county game lasts three days, though some impatient Australian invented one-day cricket.
A Test Match, e.g. between England and Australia, lasts a maximum of five days. Though there was one legendary Test, before this limit was imposed,
which stopped only because the Australians had their return journey booked on a ship which was about to sail. I forget how long it lasted, but it is
known to folklore as the "Timeless Test".
Edit; Memory misled me. It was the South Africans. The match was spread over twelve days.
