    You had to wonder how long it would be untill someone took a bat with them to the mound...

    I noticed one of the managers was Tommy John. He must stay busy between coaching and performing all those surgeries.

    Ha! In the same vein as wondering why Cy Young never won the Cy Young award.

    I must say, if baseball allowed the batter to actually carry (and use) the bat as he rounded the bases, I may be more inclined to watch!

    Of course, I do hope the folks hurt in this incident are ok.

    Will EA now start putting this in their games finally? I think this is a long overdue feature.

    Maybe they're afraid kids will start hitting each other or something.

    Ever seen the movie The Benchwarmers? This guy has to have his hands taped to the bat because he always lost it when he swung. One game he gets a triple, over-runs 3B then starts swinging the bat at the kid till he got back on the bag safely.

    Haven't seen the movie, but am wondering if anyone remembers a song from it called "Stand Up and Win". Just wondering if it is a prominent part of the show or is buried in credits or something. It's my friend's band and kinda cool to make a major motion picture. I suppose I could go and rent it!
