Arkansas has never won a baseball championship either. That’s some straight up pre-2016 Cubbery right there. My bro-in-law coaches for Arkansas and I didn’t dare call or text him tonight.

The 1B seemed to have the best beat on it and was basically camped under it, but the 2B seemed to want to play hero ball

Really glad I watched this instead of Hendricks pissing away the game last night.

2B has a better angle and should call off the 1B if he can easily get there, he just overran it by 5 yards. Not sure if that was wind, misreading the spin(presumably a lefty hit it to come back towards the field?), or just pure overexuberance.

Right handed hitter. Cadyn Grenier, the 37th overall pick to the Orioles. Next hitter up that hit the HR was Trevor Larnach, 20th overall to the Twins.

Other horrifying names I picked up from that game last night: Adley, Zebulon, Kole, Jax, Easton, Kacey, Heston, and Kyler.

Yeah I think they are at the extreme end of the millennial generation. Without looking it up, I’m going to speculate that the generation after the millenials probably begins with births post 9/11. The freshman playing last night would have been born in 1999ish.

Nah, the youngest millennials are in their mid-twenties now.

Today's college age people are post millennial or generation z.

It's not an enormous pet peeve for me but it is weird how many people keep calling anybody under 40 a millennial.

Indeed. If you graduated high school before social media existed, you are most definitely not a millennial.

More arbitrary nonsense. Caring about this imparts meaning to a meaningless distinction

It's certainly not a hill I'd die on, but broadly speaking, there are major differences.

The proliferation of technology and associated changes in the flow of information are enormous, yet "Millennial" continues to be a lazy catch-all for "people not currently materially impactful on society who are younger than me" in many media and business settings. Many Millennials grew up without widespread internet, mobile phones, or intense airport security. Someone who's 35 generally has a different worldview and grew up in a different world than someone who's 15. Hell, even someone who's 28 grew up in a different era than someone who's 18. A kid who just graduated college probably has a hard time remembering a time when there wasn't a supercomputer connecting its user to everyone else in the world from the palm of her hand -- it's pretty cool.

Yeah. Millenial is used basically any time an old person sees a young person they don't like.

I see it similar to how you've described. In my mind a millenial is someone who is old enough that they clearly remember life before the internet, but young enough that it's been around for the majority of their lives. Basically the generation that grew up during the transition.

I agree that millennial has become catchall pejorative for the nonsense of the youths, but it's also not a narrow 5 year band either. Pew research defines it as being born between 81 and 97. There are definitely a lot of millennials on the field at this year's CWS.

Yeah, the generational line has to be drawn somewhere. But, the majority of those born 81-97 share a lot of the characteristics that I mentioned (obviously less-so for the mid-late 90s birth year cohorts).

As an aside, that link has some cool charts. Millennials are the largest generation by population in the labor force, and have been since 2016, for example.
