    Re: I Find the Excuses for LSU and the SEC Very Entertaining This Morning

    What about the issue of young kids ruining their arms? My brother did. Back then, and this was the mid-to-late 1960's, youth pitchers could (if they could) throw curve balls, and any other pitch they could master. Also, while there were inning counts, especially in tourneys, but they were INNINGS, and not a pitch count. So, some young pitcher might run into a long inning, throw 40+ pitches, and it still count as just ONE of his innings. My brother, and others, did permanent damage to their arms.

    Me? I played a lot of 2nd base, even though my hero was Brooks Robinson, so I wanted to play 3rd.

    Dixie Baseball, in the last 10 years or so, changed to a pitch count rule for that reason. Makes much more sense.

    As compared to your weak mind, azzhole.

    I did play 3rd and some shortstop too at times. But, in the Dixie Majors up through and including the Dizzy Dean League, which is the best it got in recreational baseball, I was privileged to play with two very, very good infielders. Keith H. who cuz of his carrot top was called "Red", who played SS, and Gregory M. who played 3rd. Red and I turned double-plays with the best of 'em! Henry N. was our 1st baseman. Gregory had a bad habit of arguing with the umps and twice he got tossed, so our coach moved me to 3rd and brought in someone else to play 2nd. Red got sick and missed two games, so I played SS those games. I had a cannon for an arm, but the coach liked me at 2nd because of my range, and because I could play deeper than most 2nd basemen, cutting down the angle and keeping balls that would have been base hits from getting through. It was what was best for the team, so I didn't mind playing 2nd. Heck! I just enjoyed playing and would have played right field too.

    Try not to be an azzhole your whole life. You can change, ya know.
