Wilson Ramos - A Man With Five Balls

So all a catcher has to do is tell the ump what the count should be and VOILA?!

Leading off the sixth inning of the Nationals’ 9-2 win, Ramos took a ball on a 2-2 pitch. Home plate umpire Scott Barry, according to Ramos, declared the count 3-2. Rangers catcher Chris Gimenez turned and asked, “Isn’t it 2-2?”

“Yeah, Barry replied. “2-2.”

“It’s not 3-2?” Ramos asked Barry.

“No, it’s 2-2,” Barry said.

Ramos shrugged and went back to the at-bat.

A man with 5 balls- you need a pretty talented tailor for that.

Before 1880, a man could have as many as nine balls, which must have required enormous jock straps...
