Mythbusters and Baseball

Postby dclark0699 » Tue Aug 07, 2007 8:01 pm

Just a heads up, the Mythbusters episode on tomorrow night on the Discovery channel will have Roger Clemens joining the crew to test baseball myths.

No word yet as to what myths will be on the show.

Busting the myth that a 40+ pitcher can perform like he's 28 without steroids.

Thanks for the heads up, dclark

I hope he doesn't throw a bat at the Myth guys. Maybe they'll bust the myth that people respect this fat bastard.

Or maybe they'll bust the myth that Piazza was the "bigger man" (not a #%!@#>?!) for not charging the mound after having a bat thrown at him, thereby guaranteeing the Yanks the 2000 subway series. :-b
