Another Great Pop-Up Quiz Answer
Remember the pop-up quiz? If not, scroll down to the May 8 post. Kirby T. Penworthy won the prize but there were lots of great answers. Here’s one from Gina Bridgeman.
This is the kind of thing that makes baseball great (besides the way it tastes, Chet might say). I mean you don’t see Eli Manning kicking a field goal in the waning seconds of a game, do you? Darnell McDonald and Chris Davis are just the latest baseball players to become the main characters in a non-pitchers pitching duel. And Cobb and Sisler were among the first. In Boston on Sunday, McDonald, in as a pinch runner, and Davis, a designated hitter, became pitching rivals when their bullpens emptied out in what would end up a 17-inning, 9-6 Red Sox loss. Cobb and Sisler, with those great batting averages, apparently faced each other twice, and both of them fared pretty well. At least it would have been tough for the manager to walk out to the mound to take either one out of the game—both were also managers of their teams! Wouldn’t you love to be able to go back in time to see just one of those games?
