    I laughed until my sides hurt the first time I saw the lightning video.

    I remember reading about it in one of those "Baseball Hall of Shame" books that came out in the '80s and '90s. In the entry, it mentioned how she was with her two young grandsons during that game and in a later interview, one of the now-grown grandsons mentioned how Ashburn and the Phillies felt so bad about it, that they brought in the lady and her grandsons to meet the players, spend some time on the field, and the boys got some swag. As the grandson said later, "This was very exciting for all of us, not realizing the seriousness of the incident that caused it, and one of us later asked 'Grandma, do you think you can take us to an Eagles game so you can get hit with a football?'"

    I had those Hall of Shame books too. Loved them. I remember that quote.

    That guy should have bought a lottery ticket. What are the odds of getting struck by lightning twice within two minutes?

    I envision Lee Trevino walking past with a 1-iron and the guy saying, "FUCK YOU!"

    Brewers 2B prospect Keston Hiura gets the call today.

    For those that don't keep track of such things, I saw at least one list of prospects heading into the season that had him as the second-best hitter behind only Vlad Guerrero, Jr.

    I'm still looking forward to the Astros calling up Yordan Alvarez. He was already a top prospect before the season started, but he's putting up video game numbers at AAA this season.

    I saw similar praise for Hiura. Shaw has been an utter disaster, so Hiura will pretty much be an upgrade if he closes his eyes and swings away.
