By hitting it. Sammy Sosa holds the world's record for the largest
number of home runs in a single year, viz. 66 home runs in 1998. In a
game in which it is unheard of (at least in recent decades) for anyone
to hit as many as 40% of the fair balls thrown, that is astonishing.
However, although baseball is not a universal interest, it is not U.S.
specific either. Tim Bray is a Canadian, and Sammy Sosa, though he plays
in the U.S., is a Dominican. Baseball is also a national sport of Cuba,
Mexico, and Japan.

I find in the Yahoo directory the Tuggeranong Vikings. Indeed, there are
more links to Australian baseball-related sites than any other country
save Canada and the U.S.

To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all. There
are no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language
that they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful.
