My wife was chronically ill for many years, but until she needed 24/7 oxygen, it was not readily apparent that she was handicapped. People can be quick to judge.

What happens after three pitches? With just three pitches, there is an incentive to swing the bat at anything close, which would keep the game moving. If the time-at-bat is over after three pitches,...

Stat-Man, when I referee soccer, I hide my whistle behind my back, put it in one hand or the other, and have the visiting captain choose "left" or "right."
