Illinois folks trying to perfect 'donkey baseball'
PLEASANT HILL, Ill. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Folks at the Pike County Fair in Pleasant Hill, Illinois, are trying to figure out a new form of baseball, but getting their teammates to cooperate is the toughest part.
They're playing donkey baseball.
Players hit the ball, and then jump on a donkey to run the bases.
Sometimes they play along, but most of the time they don't.
The donkey's owner says the animals primary weakness are fielding the ball.
He says they may have to spend a few more years in the minor leagues.
