not one person made contact. the ball was already in the catchers mitt before they swung.
Not one batter even touched the ball in that inning. They were swinging when the ball was hitting the mitt.
I know that was the Astros --- but that was not fair to any hitter
The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

I was making a little joke. See when Giamatti busted Pete after he became commissioner he said he was "restoring Integrity" to the game, and a bunch of morons cheered him for that. Then when he smoked himself to death these same folks were ready to put him in the HOf. So when someone mentioned 1988 when Giamatti was NL president I said ..... ah forget it, you had to be there.
