I Read It In The Gazette
This is real news. High school and college pitchers may be able to throw inside again. I'm not sure I understand how it is made. The article said it is made from "12 wedges combined with adhesive and clamping pressure." Is that kind of like "cold fusion?" It is called a Radial Bat.
Calling Robert Redford and Glenn Close from The Natural. What was his bat's name? Of course, WonderBoy, thanks to Google. Watch this space after you watch the video below. I wonder if there is an excerpt of The Lou Gehrig Story on YouTube or somewhere else?
You know, the part where he says he is "the luckiest man alive" with its reverberations around Yankee Stadium. You can't help but tear up whenever you see it or hear those words. Now that I think about it, maybe that is what I will have them chisel on my gravestone.
