Mailboxing

Driving into the Baked Apple today, where temperatures may reach 100 degrees, I was listening to WAMC, the public radio station out of Albany.  They had a call-in show in which listeners were asked to share what they thought was good about America.  One man from Boiceville called in and said it was good that in our country, even though it was polarized, he could attend a Pro-Choice rally and come home and not find that a Pro-Lifer had played “mailbox baseball.”

I was unfamilar with this vivid expression, although I realized of course what it meant.  Now I find a whole Wikipedia entry on the topic detailing all the movies and television shows in which mailbox baseball, aka mailboxing, has been depicted.
