Saturday's debut of player-to-be-named-later Micah Owings, the Babe Ruth of the 21st century, with the Cincinnati Reds, couldn't have been more dramatic.
Dusty Baker today told Marty Brennaman that Owings had said that he wasn't sure whether he could pitch but he was sure he could hit.
Owings was understatedly right. In the tenth inning, he knocked a pinch-hit double to drive in the deciding run.
Gentle readers will be glad to know that Owings is a committed Christian as well as an amazing hitter and talented pitcher.
Welcome to Cincinnati, Micah! We hope that you have a lot of nights like Saturday.
