Here are several links from the past week that will make your Monday a bit more bearable:
Boy, sometimes it sure is nice to have instant replay. Because in real-time, nobody in the booth or in the stands seems to have realized Friday night just how odd Corey Dickerson’s double really was. . . .
I can’t find any evidence, but I have some vague memory of Guerrero actually hitting a home run off a pitch that bounced. My memory’s probably faulty. But Guerrero did hit a bloop single off a bouncing pitch in 2009, and this grainy video seems to show Ichiro hitting a bouncing pitch while he was still playing in Japan. I’ve seen a few other players do it over the years. So it does happen. But doubling off a bouncing pitch? That’s pretty rare.
That’s it. Have a walk-off week!
