Unknown pranksters planted a tree in the infield of a high school baseball field in 2015, directly between the pitcher's mound and home plate. The tree was removed by groundkeepers before the next game.

In Episode 675, Ben and Sam discussed the impact of the tree on the game in great detail, both in its current state and if it were allowed to grow larger.

Ben muses, "They should have left it." Sam agrees.

In the Facebook group[edit | edit source]

Despite being mentioned in only one episode of the podcast, the "tree in the infield" is referenced occasionally on the Facebook group.

In April 2017, a post on the Facebook group pointed out that it happened again.
