Baseball, and Pettis, Are Missing Something

August 15, 1987

Suffering through watching Gary Pettis of the Angels at bat makes one cry out for a new category to be used in baseball lineups: The DK, designated strikeout. Being a switch-hitter, he is a threat to strike out either left- or right-handed.

Perhaps a trade with the Dodgers can be arranged. Lasorda could really use the best center fielder in professional baseball. Manny Mota can surely teach Pettis what all batting instructors know: How to hit a round ball with a round bat, squarely.
