Pitching Machines at the World Series

Pitching Machines at the World Series
The MLB season ended in dramatic fashion capping off one of the greatest World Series of all time, with one of the best baseball games you will ever see. The Chicago Cubs defeated the Cleveland Indians in extra innings to claim their first World Series title since 1908. It was a terrific end to the baseball season and will only add to the excitement for next baseball season. The quality of the games was only topped by some of the storylines and performances on display. In context, no performance was as impressive as the Chicago Cubs Kyle Schwarber who was out the entire MLB season with a knee injury. Schwarber was asked to return and play in undoubtedly the biggest game of his life after not hitting off of a major league pitcher all year. Schwarber’s contribution to the Cubs World Series victory will be remembered forever after going 7-17 and only 4 strikeouts, an amazing accomplishment under the circumstances. So how did he do it? If you listened to the game you...
