Ive always hoped to see it.. thats why most pitchers still throw it some what hard instead of just lobbing them because if it doenst go far enough then hitters can do with miggy did...

Yeah you are out if you don't have both feet in the box when you strike the ball. Remember Carl Everett? Remember the headbutt? That was because he got called out for his foot being outside of the box -- the line had been erased and the ump thought he was too far back -- which he was.

LOL good stuff. I've never seen that happen before. I've seen a clip of a pitcher and catcher faking the inten. walk and k'ing the guy with a knee high fastball though. :-b
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Pretty pathetic a major league pitcher can't throw the ball far enough away so the guy can't hit it when he's supposed to intentionally walk him.


how bout a HR off of an intentional walk? ;-D



There are many tales of Gibson's hitting prowess. Some are just for fun, like the home run he hit in Forbes Field that disappeared over the outfield wall. The next day in Philadelphia an outfielder caught a fly ball and the umpire called Gibson out - "...yesterday in Pittsburgh!" It is true he hit a ball 500 miles - it landed in a passing truck outside of the ball park! But more seriously, he is credited with the only homer ever hit completely out of Yankee Stadium, and he once hit a home run over the center field fence when the pitcher threw too close to the plate on an attempted intentional walk. He is said to have hit the longest home runs ever hit in at least three Major League parks, even though he played in them just a few times.
