The Ultimate Specialist

first_imgRandy Choate is a left-handed pitcher with the St. Louis Cardinals.  Last year he appeared in 70 ball games.  In 51 of those 70 games he only faced one batter.  This means that Choate only pitched 27 1/3 innings.  What a cushy job.  Ha!  Ha!  This means that for pitching that 27+ innings he earned 3 million dollars.  How about that for an hourly rate?In the league, there were 398 one-batter appearances.  This is up 132 appearance from 2014.  When looking at some baseball stats for 2015, I ran across Choate’s name and decided to look up his statistics.  If memory serves me correct, he has been doing this for at least 5 years now  If you have a young son playing baseball, hope he is a left hander and can pitch!  He might find a very cushy major league job if he has the talent.last_img
