[Hide Comment] The only person I know that has given it any serious effort is Chad Gilbert. He ended up pitching off the end and was left with some lasting injuries. The photos make that thing seem is not. :) Jan 11, 2018
[Hide Comment] Is this where Chad got his ankle fused? I always tell people who got totally jacked up that I know a guy who still climbs 13+ with hockey stick for a foot. Seems to cheer them up. Jan 12, 2018
