The Fourth True Outcome Newsbeat

Friday, October 18, 2019

The hit-by-pitch god

In the latest edition of SB Nation’s “Dorktown,” Jon Bois and Alex Rubenstein statistically rhapsodize on the career of “an otherwise normal-seeming person, who, to an extent baseball has never before seen, willingly uses his own body as a human baseball bat”—Brandon Guyer. Don’t miss the graphic around 8:30 and stay for the end, with bonus videos of players failing at sliding and at running into Albert Belle.
