(as Farmio would say) ... for launching the most improbable of comebacks, as a pitcher.

Hard to believe he's only 31.

That's awesome. Go Ben.

Back in '04, I totally called his walk off double during the "C'mon Timo!" game. That was one of the more exciting games I've attended. :D:

I was watching that game on tv, probably the only Ben Davis memory of any Sox fan. I hope it works out for him. The Reds also convinced Jerry Gil, a light (non) hitting utility infielder to try pitching this year. Interesting that their crappy-hitting minor leaguers are headed to the mound.

'I think what I did was a lot tougher.'

I thought Brooks Keishnick did a good job switching to pitching, and he also developed into a good weapon as a PH.

Kieschnick was a great PH his last year and with that funky delivery he was fun to watch. Didn't he homer as a pitcher, PH, DH, and position player (LF) in the same season? He accomplished some sort of funky feat like that.

I remember that game because the day before I went and saw Shingo blow his only save of the season.

Was it against the Indians? IIRC, he gave up 3 ERs vs them and Robbie Alomar homered in the game. Not sure if this is it, but I went to a Shingo BS and was not too pleased about it.

I thought Ben Davis was in the minors in all of '05?:scratch:

Yep, that's the one.

Then the next day, he gets the win in the famous "C'mon Timo" game

I can't think of his name, but who was the player a few years ago, who played for the Brewers who could pitch and hit? I think he was selected by the Cubs in the 1st round.

A pitcher in the NL? Now's his chance to show off his fabulous bunting skills. (If you don't get this, ask Bob Brenly.)
