Funny story there.


Only thing I can add about Joe Buck...he commented that he would sometimes shag balls and go out on the field during BP and stuff. He mentioned that the throw from shortstop to first is a lot longer than it looks.

I played in HS. When I went from 70’ basepaths at 14 to 90’ at 16 (I stopped playing two years), I was like ‘whoa’.

It is close to 150’. And to throw it to first without a bounce and very little arc takes a bit of effort, at least when you hit the mid-50’s in age.

When I first tried playing again after a 34 year hiatus, I played third. I threw my first ball to first off line. Shortstop told me to not rush, relax.

I said I don’t throw as hard as I used to when I was 18.

He reminded me the batter doesn’t run as fast as he used to, either.

That's a cute little version of what happened in Charlotte NC in 2016. A ton of "protesters" stopped up both sides of the 5 lane interstate and started looting stuff out of the back of trucks and setting it on fire.
