    Talk about aiming misfires. That's probably going to turn him off for any more competitions

    On a slightly related note:

    "Ray Chapman played shortstop for the Cleveland Naps, facing off against pitcher Carl Mays. Mays' unique submarine delivery combined with a scuff-ball, created a pitch whose path was impossible to predict. Chapman didn't even duck as the ball struck him on the head, causing his death."

    Apparently this happened in 1920 and the following year, 1921 was Mays best.

    I wonder who screwed up here, whether the judge ran into the field before it was safe to do so, if the boy was given the go-ahead to throw when it wasn't safe to do so, or whether the boy was throwing recklessly on his own initiative.

    Well the article said they think it was because of a gust of wind but I'm sure there were numerous factors that occurred

    I thought this was on purpose, then thought "damn the kid has good aim".

    I guess it just goes to show you....you need to be more careful when you're getting to the point.
