Can lead an Intergalactic Empire.  Check
Knows how to kick butt with a light saber.  Check
Can use the force for all kinds of cool stuff.  Check
Can throw a baseball.  Not so much.

As we near Star Wars Day (that’s May the Fourth … be with you), the Cincinnati Reds turned to the dark side and had Darth Vader throw out the first pitch on Friday night.  Darth should probably stick to easier things like conquering galaxies and blowing up planets with the Death Star.  Check it out (via CBS Eye on Baseball)

You figure he could have used the Force to hit the outside corner.  Word is that he is looking for a contract and will crush your throat if you don’t sign him.  He had thirty offers by morning.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
