“You never know what you’ll see when you come to the ballpark” (baseball adage)

"The old adage that ‘you never know what you’ll see when you come to the ballpark’ is absolutely true,” a baseball writer said in 2015. It’s not known how old this adage is, or who coined it. “You never know what you’re going to see when you come to the ballpark” was cited in 2009. “You never know what you’re going to see when you attend a baseball game” was cited in 2012.

The greatest thing about baseball is that no two games are ever alike. The old adage that “you never know what you’ll see when you come to the ballpark” is absolutely true. There are so many moving parts, intricacies, and potential outcomes, that all 2,430 games in a season are unique—as every game is at every level.
