Dizzying Feats Inspire Dizzying Claims

Today I perchanced to notice a most boastful Facebook update, courtesy of the San Antonio Missions. 

“Check out the greatest Bat Race of all time!”, it read. My job being what it is, I checked it out immediately. And here is what I saw:

Now this is a great bat race, to be sure. Excellent, even. But as a responsible journalist, it is my job to temper the breathless hyperbole of blinkered partisans in favor of a more fact-based historical approach.

Because in 2008 the Quad Cities River Bandits unleashed a video entitled “Best Dizzy Bat Race EVER”:

Have San Antonio’s infield tumblers succeeded in their Mission to overtake Quad Cities’ crowd-endangering best bros? Or is the River Bandits’ claim of best EVER still valid?

America will be the judge.
