Nice piece by Daniel Barbarisi in the Wall Street Journal about a bat boy and the pine-tar incident.
Unrelated, I found this photograph at Royals Then, Now & Forever. See the way Nettles is sliding his right foot? He did that before every pitch. When I played as a kid, up through high school, I copied that move too. If I stood on an infield today, without thinking, I’m sure I’d do it again.
