Pitched and played outfield. ;-D Wasn't spectacular at either though, but I could hit. :-) ;-D

I played baseball through 8th grade, and I was solid, but not one of the best players. I didn't even bother trying out for the high school team, because even if I made it I'd just be sitting on the bench. I skipped out on spring sports completely during my first year in high school, and this year I did tennis.

Baseball is by far my favorite sport though, if I was better I would definitely play it over tennis (nothing against tennis). I used to play mostly infield (second, short and third, not first base) and I would occasionaly catch or play outfield or something when the coaches would want to switch things up.

I think you meant that you haven't met anyone who didn't have serve consistency problems.

Make the poor kid feel bad, why don'cha? :-b

I love tennis. My serve of course sucks. The only way that I get a good serve in consistently is by severely footfaulting. My best move is in doubles - I pick off the partner at the net with my first serve and blame it on my "inconsistency". The partner that is picked off is usually shaky for a few games afterwards. Of course it isn't as effective if I've played them before - kinda like Hideo Nomo the second time through the order.
