Sorry that I'm completely detering from pitching, but I've been watching all the coverage of Hurricane Ike and I'm pretty shocked at the impact it might have on the northeast Texas community. Personally, I was born in Houston, TX and I would have had to evacuate had I not moved to PA (long time ago). Texas is one of the biggest baseball states in America, (the others being California, Florida, and Arizona?) I don't know if any contributor to this forumn lives there, but best of luck to those people whose communities and/or lives are being impacted by this hurricane. I hope this doesn't ruin playing baseball for anyone, it's a beautiful sport.
