A Fond Farewell And Good Riddance To Pitchers Hitting. You Were Abominable. I’ll Miss You.

It’s more than just weak dribblers to kill rallies and pitching around eight-hitters. It’s the double switch, and it’s the warm-up jacket being run out by a bat boy to keep a pitcher’s shoulder warm on the basepaths, and it’s hurlers hurting themselves running the bases, and it’s those few pitchers who can really whack it, outweighed by the many, many who cannot, and it’s members of that latter group occasionally getting around on one.
