Bad hands

A short anecdote to get you thinking about spring training.

Marv Throneberry was one of those ballplayers who seemed to have an aversion to catching balls hit at or thrown to him. His manager, the baseball legend Casey Stengel, was presented with a birthday cake one day.

Throneberry pouted and asked, "I had a birthday the other day. Why didn't somebody give me a cake?"

Stengel answered, "We would have, but we was afraid you'd drop it."
