How ‘Bout This Kid Hurling Knucklers At The Little League World Series?
I don’t even feel bad writing this blog because I don’t think this is the kid’s fault at all. I used to pretend I could throw dumb shit, that I really had no clue how to throw, when I was a kid too. Maybe Skip could pull him aside and let him know though? Maybe go out to the mound and instead of saying “Gotta get that kunckleball down” you say “You can’t throw a knuckleball. You’ve thrown 1 strike in 10 pitches. Balls are either going to the outfield or to the backstop. Just throw, don’t pitch.” Would that be so hard? You’re just not going to get to Williamsport with that kind of soft managing.
