the best baseball language

Major league baseball player Jair Jurrjens, in an interview with Baseball America in the spring of '07, said Papiamentu is the best baseball language.

BA: You can speak four languages: English, Spanish, Dutch, and Papiamentu. Which of them is the best baseball language?

JJ: Well, definitely not Dutch! Papiamentu is pretty good if I’m back home, but no one here speaks it. I guess Spanish is maybe a little better than English.

Hmm. I never thought of baseball as a language oriented activity. But it's nice to have an endorsement from a major leaguer!
