“The Rope” is by far the most versatile ballist in the field. He repeatedly shows a generous amount of sand, and grit at any position he plays. His arm strength, for which he gained his moniker, is among the greatest of our fieldsmen. Whether he is throwing across the diamond from 3rd, home, or rifling in a howitzer from the long field, his aim is always true. Many a runner has found his hand lost due to the flaming shots from “The Rope”.
