Josh Womack, Gandalf of Bats

Survey Josh Womack’s professional baseball career, and you come away impressed merely to the extent that he had a professional baseball career. That’s to say, Womack’s bestowals on the diamond are somewhat forgettable. What’s not forgettable is the abracadabra-sorcery-jinx-necromancy that Mr. Womack can perform with a maple stick …

Bewitchment! Pointy hat, gnarled oaken staff and flowing purple robe festooned with astral designs!

The skills are crazy, the backdrop… not so much. Telus field is brutal. Maybe if it wasn’t huge and empty it would have been better. My favorite memory of playing there was having slutty bartenders in short skirts and high heels as bat girls one night.

I love how the most mundane players can give you fun memories. As a visiting player in Beloit, Womack almost ran over my (at the time) toddler as Womack ran to the clubhouse for a pee-break. It was my son’s first game, and afterwards I was able to snap a pic of Womack holding my son. Thankfully, he did not flip him around like a bat.

His coaches only wish that he spent as much time and effort *swinging* a bat as he did *twirling* one.

This must be what they mean by players with good “bat control.”
