There's so much foul ground there it looks like you could have another baseball diamond next to the regular one.

That's why people who always gripe about Reggie being in the HOF because he had "such a low batting average" are full of crap.

What about the fact that he led the league in strikeouts who knows how many times? Reggie is perhaps the most overrated player of the past 25 years.

Take a look at the strike out totals (relative to the average for the era in which they played) of Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, and Willie Stargell. Then get back to me.
