Commonplace: Kieschnick

31 January 2006

“Whatever you do, just make sure you throw every pitch with conviction.”
—Brooks Kieschnick

(Kieschnick was the star pitcher and slugger at the University of Texas when I was an undergraduate there. He wasn’t quite good enough as either a pitcher or a hitter to stick in a full-time role in the major leagues, but he has enjoyed some success in recent years as a combination reliever/pinch-hitter. Given this quotation above, which I took from a sports feature on him some time ago, I’d say he has his head on straight, too. How many of us fail to follow this advice in our day-to-day lives?)
