When you see this for the first time, all of the basic questions beg to be answered: Who, what, when, where, why, and how? I think the “how” is the biggest question for me. How do you even think to do this?

I’m definitely not going to knock it though. As the clean-up hitter for a team that qualified for the College World Series regionals he’s hit at a healthy rate for a good team.
