Quote Of The Day

2 comments July 1st, 2007at 10:10pm Posted by Eli

From an NYT story on LA Angels leadoff man Reggie Willits and his family, who actually live in a batting cage:

When he wants to bat, he pushes aside the sofas to form his personal playing field. He steps inside the net, suspended from the ceiling. If Amber is busy, he hits off a tee.

If she is free, she feeds balls into the pitching machine. Amber stands behind an L-Screen, the kind used to protect batting-practice pitchers. Still, line drives sometimes rip through the screen.

“I know she’s taken a few in the helmet,” said Mickey Hatcher, the Angels’ hitting coach. “But that’s part of the game.”

Now that’s devotion.

    He’s currently batting .337, so I guess he’s doing something right. Pity his wife, though…

    If you live *in* a batting cage, you damn well *better* be hitting .337.
