An Amazing Inning

In yesterday’s game between the Reds and the Blue Jays, David Weathers of the Reds threw just 6 pitches in the bottom of the 7th inning. That’s an amazing feat (but not unheard of) just on its own, but what’s even more amazing is what happened in those 6 pitches. Three Blue Jays reached base on 3 hits to load the bases with nobody out. Then Weathers pitched out of the jam retiring the side without any runs scoring. He got Scott Rolen to pop out on the infield and Lyle Overbay to hit into a rare 1-2-3 double play. Only 1 pitch reached catcher David Ross’s mitt the entire inning. Overbay took a ball before hitting into the double play. (link)

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
