Well, I took 6 years off from baseball and then decided to give it a shot through my park district. Now, you can just forget about it. If a guy has a decent fastball and a curve he can throw for strikes I'm screwed. Granted, we played with essentially the same ball all game, so that thing's getting dirtier and dirtier. Additionally, a good chunk of the games are at night which I think hurts. If I can't pick up the rotation, I'm hopeless.
I've had more than my share of moments where I wound up ducking like my life depended on it, only for the pitch to be called a strike. I played with a guy who is now in AAA. He had a curveball that was just ridiculous.
