PRLog - Sep. 25, 2012 - As much as author Verle D. Dresback loved baseball, it did not love him. He was good enough in other high school sports to receive scholarship offers to play basketball and football at Montana State, the Butte School of Mines and Carol College in Billings, Montana.
Needless - A Fresh Look at Baseball Failures
Another offer letter arrived, but it was from the draft board. He chose the Air Force, where he served from 1954 to 1974. During the last half of his military career, he taught advanced airborne electronic maintenance in the mornings, and coached youngsters in baseball, football and basketball in the afternoons.
The author asks if baseball is a game of failures. He answers in three parts. No. 1: Failures by hitters on an average team exceed 4,000 per season, which can be reduced by at least 50 percent. No. 2: Failures by starting pitchers can be eliminated. No. 3: The two biggest on-field problems for managers today are when to pull the starting pitcher and finding a way to get the players to play the proper way. Don’t strike out! Reading about the game is nearly as exciting as being there.
