  1. One time, a major league player who played throughout the 70’s (and seldom struck out) was hanging out with me in my office while he was waiting for someone. Somehow I got onto the subject of people striking out too much. I went into a full-fledged rant about how Jim Rice could choke up two inches with two strikes and still hit a ball over 400 feet, how even I could at least make contact when I played local fast pitch softball (as bad as I was), and the player jumped right in with his identical views. Two prophets crying in the wilderness!
