Fun stuff today working on Amazing Sports Stories. It was a beautiful, sunny day in Ontario - downright hot in those wool duds. I got to run the bases, throw the ball around, sit in the dugout, and best of all, was one of two guys who got to hit a little bit. It has been years since I've had to hit live pitching (not counting sweet 16-in softball hurling ;). And even though it was hardly major league pitching, it was still a bit intimidating having to hit on cue and without any warm-up. But, the worst part was that they set up the camera mere feet behind the plate, so I was constantly worried about fouling a ball back and breaking the $10,000 camera and/or one of the faces on the 10 people standing directly behind me.
The show will air on Fox Sports Network starting in April, though I don't know if it will just be on the FSN California stations, but I will let you know if I hear. Anyway, who knows what of me they will choose to use - if anything - but it was a lot of fun getting to wear Yankee pinstripes, even if just for a day.
