He has elevated the art of playing second base a step beyond its traditional bounds, to a level most mortals--and most major leaguers--can only dream of approaching. He plays in Pittsburgh, yet his grace, the sheer brilliance of his talents seems more suited for the stage rather than a stadium in a rough-and-tumble steel town. His range is almost limitless, his throwing arm is a cannon, the speed with which he removes the ball from his glove can be captured only by a high-speed camera lens.
