Good question !
I mean, why would anyone want to be the centerpiece for hecklers, the poster boy for anything and everything that can go wrong - and does. And if that wasn’t enough, I’ve seen potato fields that were in better shape than a lot of pitching mounds. Then there’s the ride home in the family car listening to dad spout on about what should’ve been done, but never once giving credit for having the guts just to give it a shot in first place. And let’s not forget the ongoing opportunity to permanently hurt yourself by overuse, adults driven to win at all costs, and this “tough it out kid” mentality from just about everyone around you.
So tell me, what is it that makes you pitch? Why would anyone deliberately ask for this?
