On Saturday, Cleveland Indians hurler David Huff gave all of us anxious moments when the pitch he dealt was swatted back to the box and hit Huff in the forehead.
While he was taken away on a stretcher, Huff gave us all a thumbs up and so far there seems to be no major damage other than a clip of video that will follow him throughout his career.
So I am wondering....Who will be the first state or federal legislator to call for hearings and the drafting of "David's Law"? It could require pitchers to wear a helmut or mandate the placement of a screen such is used in batting practice.
Maybe a lengthening of the distance although that would upset a century of pitching regimen.
Yes, this issue....with its accompanying video would be a great holiday weekend press release for Assemblyman Felix Ortiz who hasn't made the cable news nets since his call for a ban on salt in restaurant kitchens.
Perhaps the GOP could make it a call for tort reform so that A-Rod's liability for damages would be limited. And is a line drive to the noggin' covered under Obama-Care ?
For lawmakers looking to avoid their other failings, this clip of video is a terrible thing to waste.
