Pitchers Should Bat

I’ve confessed to not being a particularly ardent baseball fan. But I am a fan of sports in general. And, also, I’m a guy so everything that happens in the sports world somehow eventually filters through to my brain, where it is immediately stored away for later use at any gathering where there is at least one (1) other guy present and during games of Trivial Pursuit.

But there is nothing trivial about the gesture made today by the Texas Rangers.

With their 33rd-round pick in the First-Year Player Draft on Wednesday, the Texas Rangers selected University of Georgia outfielder Johnathan Taylor, who suffered partial paralysis after injuring his spine in a game on March 6.

Alright. Just to be clear, I’ll now root for the Texas Rangers but I still don’t believe in the designated hitter rule.

Well done, guys.
