For your enjoyment...

Here's a fun article on tipped balls, an important part of the game that is overlooked.

"Cracking the TB Code," by David Fleming

I have one quibble with this otherwise insightful article. We need to kill the cliche that a geek of any sort is living in his/her "parents' basement." It's overused, inaccurate, demeaning, and stupid. For more on lousy metaphors, see George Orwell's "Politics and the English Language."

  1. I agree. I hate, hate, hate the mainstream media's characterization of internet people.

    Nice find on the article also.
