Upon much goading by certain members of the media, Blue Jays’ third base coach Brian Butterfield has been hitting baseballs toward us. Seriously. He’s gotten one into the press box, from just outside the Toronto dugout. (One came fairly close to my seat, in fact.) And he just got one caught from a guy hanging out of one of the radio/TV booths. He’s emptying a big bag of balls, and he was pretty accurate overall.
It’s funny, if nothing else.
The key, right now, is to put your head down and duck.
