He sure knows how to kiss player-butt. :-)

Tough game? No doubt there is skill involved but a tough game? You swing a bat at a ball, you catch the ball and throw the ball. Whats so 'tough' about it. Skill yes. Toughness no!! Go tell a football player or hockey player that baseball is a tough sport.
