BASEBALL IS JUST MORE FUN IN THE NATION:

Sox outfielders play Rock, Paper, Scissors (Maureen Mullen, 6/08/09, MLB.com)

When Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury had to leave Sunday afternoon's game with a right shoulder strain, Rocco Baldelli -- the only available outfielder left -- knew he was going into the game. But would he be in center, directly replacing Ellsbury? Or would Mark Kotsay, who started the game in right, move over to center?

Baldelli and Kotsay are both versatile outfielders who are above average in both center and right. So the two players tried a unique and fun method to try to solve the dilemma. With Kotsay sitting on the bench and Baldelli standing next to him, the two players engaged in a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors to determine who would go where.
