He could throw that speedball by you, make you look like a fool

Man, the Shawon-O-Meter brings back memories (via Gapers Block ). Like a lot of kids who grew up in baseball-free regions (me: southwestern Virginia) most of my baseball exposure came through WGN, and I have fond memories of Dunston just throwing rockets from short. Dunston's throws were one of the great underrated events in sport. Not to mention: my first real baseball glove was a Shawon Dunston model, which I was quite proud of.
