I remember hearing about this during my impressionable years while playing in high school. I was never much of a pitcher, but I've had my moments. I get called to make my first start. Gave up 4 bombs in the second inning, and moved back to my position at second. Took a hot grounder to the nose and there was no bad hop...just straight in and out of my mitt and right up in the face. Who knows, things may have been different if I woulda dropped a hit of acid instead of smokin the Wednesday Weed before the game???
