I remember in elementary school we went out to play baseball for PE. I was somewhere left, either left field or third base. The ball ⚾ bounced over to me, I grabbed it up and threw it at first. Damned it I didn't peg the runner 🏃 in the head. We were both out after that, I think they suspected this trouble maker meant to do that, but they couldn't prove it.

That was a goddamned bullet.  Hell of a guy, that Yasiel, way to go.

I saw Kirby Puckett get drilled that same way against the Rangers.  Broke the game down, making sure he was alright, and making sure the first baseman wasn't an a-hole.  Some innings later, Kirby stole a base on the Rangers.  That fat farker stole a base!  The Ranger stands stood up to cheer it.  We were happy for Kirby, not so much for the Twins.  Attending a game is always fun.

I'm still confused why third base coaches would have a runner go when it'shiat out near Puig.  It's not like he's only done it once.

Damn. That's one hell of a throw.

I know the url can't contain the decimal point, but without that, or a dash, it reads
yasiel-puig-picks-up-assist-with-962-mph-throw?
Wow - that is fast!

During a softball game, I almost beaned a runner in the back of the head while playing catcher.  It was weird that missed, because I throw straight darts during infield plays.  But that play, my fingers, ball, her head, and first baseman's glove were all in a straight line.  They weren't at first, she changed to run inside the line to take away the throw, but I had already made the throw.  To this day, I still explain why or how that ball curved around her head, and still hit the glove perfect.  Her face was only one step away from the glove when the ball got there.  She fell to the dirt, knowing she almost got clobbered.

I don't feel bad knowing she purposely put herself in the way.  That whole team was a bunch of cheap shot artist, but I learned that's to be expected.  They were Southern Baptist.

I think it's unicode. The iPad keyboard 🎹 offers the extended range in the pick-3 segment. If I see an emoji on offer, I use it. Our smart keyboards also öffér êxtrá łęttērß åt á preśš.

That team exhibited every bit of that song.  Also in that game, their short stop punched me in the leg hoping to get me to take my foot off the bag to get tagged, their runner lowered his shoulder on our third baseman because he was upset about being thrown out at third at his last attempt to reach third, as well as the profanity.  Thing is, it was a prison tournament.  Teams from different prisons, and a couple church teams.  Our team wasn't so much church affiliated, but a Bible college team, I was the only player not from the school.  I say that because the prison teams called that team dirty.  They should be ashamed convicted felons didn't want to play with them because of the rule breaking.  It was justice that we were the team to eliminate them, and we played short handed.  We had 9 players, in a game that fields 10.

Meh, Bo did it better.

Andre Dawson would throw out the runner on a sacrifice fly from right field,  Usually they just walked back to the bag rather than try to score.
