The Curious Case Of Sidd Finch

I think I'm getting too old and crotchety to enjoy April Fool's Day (seriously not sure why I even bother reading anything online on April 1st), but in the spirit of the day here is April Fool's Day done right:

The Curious Case of Sidd Finch:

Standing outside the enclosure, Stottlemyre explained what he wanted. "First of all," the coach said, "the club's got kind of a delicate situation here, and it would help if you kept reasonably quiet about it. O.K.?" The three nodded. Stottlemyre said, "We've got a young pitcher we're looking at. We want to see what he'll do with a batter standing in the box. We'll do this alphabetically. John, go on in there, stand at the plate and give the pitcher a target. That's all you have to do."

"Do you want me to take a cut?" Christensen asked.

Stottlemyre produced a dry chuckle. "You can do anything you want."
