It's 2 weeks before Christmas Eve and I'm stuck at home on a Friday night more than a little bored. I thought, for "kicks and giggles" (whatever that means), I might post some You-Tubes that the denizens of fogpog might enjoy (maybe, maybe not).
Let's start with the best catch in the history of baseball at any level. You've seen fantastic catches from years past and amazing catches from players of recent years. Take my word for it they all pale compared to this catch. (I guarantee you will watch this over and over to get it all):
You've seen the best catch in history how about the best pitch? It's coming up. (Hint: Asian baseball is craz
The best pitch I ever saw was about 20-25 years ago when I wandered into a favorite "watering hole" to relax and watch a little baseball. There was an on-going feud of modest proportions with the afternoon bar-keep at this particular establishment who preferred "professional wrestling" while his patrons desired some quality baseball. On this day that I wandered in he announced proudly (no doubt seeking approval): "Hey look, I have a baseball game on for you guys!" I looked up (only to see the White Sox jousting with an equally uninteresting opponent). "Thanks, but no thanks", I replied, "We prefer Major League baseball".
Well my eyes were on the TV and by good fortune I saw a spectacular pitch. As I said the best single pitch I've ever seen in my life. "Black" Jack McDowell (remember him) was on the mound for the Sux and it was such that the camera angle was over his right shoulder in such a manner that we viewers saw the path of the pitched ball from directly behind: a wonderful view. Black Jack threw a fastball that looked like it was rolling and bouncing down an 8 inch plastic pipe. It swirled and bobbed and I tell you nobody - nobody

It's the best pitch I have ever seen until I saw this:
LOL I'm still trying to figue out if that was intentional!
