You ever hear the saying: "Pitchers aren't athletes?" It's so untrue, right?
The whole every-fifth-day mentality kind of ruined it for the guys who probably don't skip leg day and have to hurl fastballs past guys and pray they don't get ahold of one. Alas, here we are with guys like Ty Blach making those people keep quiet.
During Thursday night's Triple-A matchup between the River Cats and the Las Vegas Aviators, Ty Blach got a grounder hit right at him. He bobbled it, but -- well ...
He managed to get the out -- and jokingly said it was exactly how they planned it to be.
Say what you want, but that takes athletic ability -- or luck. It takes both luck and athletic ability.
