Good one BRM. Yours will also.
The point of my post was to state the obvious. I just got tired of reading such things as flexability, speed, jump, ect. Because when it comes down to it, there is always someone that is faster, can jump higher, or more flexable. It takes a combination of these skills, that are required to make it and stay in the big league.
There is one skill that can get you to the big leagues and that is the skill to hit home runs. If flexabilty could get you even a cup of coffee, the yoga teacher at the local rec club would be platooning for a spot in Left field.
If there was one other skill that could even get you to the big leagues, I would say it is a fastball that tops 100+ MPH. But if you have no control you will not be around for long.
So I am glad you could help BRM. And thanks for your insight.
