The plan for my week in Texas before I head back off to school: seven baseball games in seven days. Game One? Complete. Astros beat the Giants 3-1 and I sat in bullpen seats.
All the better for observing Hunter Pence's awesome uniform adjustments. When Pence got called up last season it was brought to my attention that he never stops touching himself. I thought this had to be an exaggeration.
During the top of the 4th inning, my friend Jessica counted how many times he adjusted his uniform per at bat. The counts are as following:
21, 48, and 28. That is a total of NINETY-SEVEN TIMES IN ONE INNING. And it was only a three at-bat inning! That's it!
