Batting Practice

Santa Claus, Indiana.
Paul Lo Duca, who as a child practiced baseball by hitting pinto beans with a broomstick in his backyard, put his ballplaying talents to use in a totally different way last night. He pitched to David Wright in the annual Home Run Derby, and Wright put up the 3rd-best round of all time.
"I was a pitcher in high school," Lo Duca said. "Now you see why I'm not."
SANTA CLAUS UPDATE: In case you were wondering, there really is a town called Santa Claus, Indiana. Even funnier, however, is the story of how they named it.
