Re: Most important skill in baseball
....is the ability to get your socks just the right length - not too high and not too low. It is also crucial to get both the right and left socks level. Failing to do this can result in some serious pine time. In fact this is somewhat of a lost art. Baseball purists across the country bemoan the current situation where many players have simply given up trying to master this skill and resort to having their trousers hemmed at shoe-top length. Which is why it is so refreshing to see that Chris Denorfia still possesses that old-school knack. Great hosiery fundamentals on that kid.
