I saw that on the highly respected Keith Olbermann's show tonight. It is truly brilliant. Brings back memories of Tito Fuentes, who juggled the bat before each at-bat, but had a few other tricks like that one that he pulled on the side.

The show is highly respected, or Keith Olbermann? I can't imagine either scenario, so I guess it's a moot point.

Some of you guys may remember Mickey Rivers from the Yankees...after a swing and a miss, he pin-wheeled his bat with a multitude of rotations before grabbing it...all the while non-chalantly....
