Sit in the stands at a baseball game and listen to Hawthorne call the game. It really opens your eyes to how bad his play calling is when you can see the play in front of you. The number of "bloop singles" that were in the outfield etc...is a lot.
I remember when he had an epic meltdown once during a double switch when he was have a mini seizure about how LSU wasn't going to have a catcher in the game - like Skip Bertman was new to the whole idea of a double switch. Next inning Hawthorne came out and said he didn't understand what happened...no kidding lol.
If you aren't actually watching the game in person or on TV while listening to Hawthorne he's not bad. He makes the game exciting and moving along, just his facts are not always facts.
