Way back when I played JUCO, we played against a guy that threw 7 innings against us in the first game and 3 innings n the second game. We always played two 7-inning games. The next time we played them, we had a 14-inning game in which he pitched all 14 innings. Side note: I came in to pi...
I spent three days in March in and around Bayeux, Normandy. I did an eight hour D-Day tour. I made it all the way through seeing Utah Beach, the museum, Pointe du Hoc, and the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach. We arrived at the cemetery right before 4pm when they lower the flags and play Taps. ...

Down votes for saying Jones needs to swing the bat. Guess you guys think the batters need to watch the ump call crap strikes and strikeout the rest of the game?...

You know the ump is calling it outside and low....SWING Sat there and looked at all three called strikes. Two were bad, but you have to swing. Power hitters need to swing the bat....
