I was surfing around Rotoworld.com this evening, when I came across this funny tidbit on Calvin Pickering.
From March 5th:
|Calvin Pickering had a grand slam turned into a three-run single today when he passed Justin Huber at first base.|
Absolutely the most unlikely story of the spring. ''That was the batter's fault,'' manager Tony Pena said. ''We want our runners to tag up in that situation and we want the batter to be watching the runner.'' In order to guarantee that this never happens again, the Royals have requested permission from the league to install a hamburger stand adjacent to first base.
Pickering is 6'5", 267 pounds of hamburger-loving man.
