Life Imitates Baseball

[In his only major league appearance, Joe Cleary gave up seven runs while getting one out. The one out was a strikeout, as described by Joe himself to the Baltimore Post.

"The man was up to bat for the second time during the inning. He hit two wicked fouls down the third base side. I decided to waste a pitch at that point. I did such a good job of wasting it, that it sailed about two feet to the right of home plate, and by the time the catcher had retrieved it, the runner on first had made it to third. The batter was laughing so hard that he totally missed my next pitch and struck out." - Joe Cleary in The Baltimore Post]
