Everyman outfielder Sam Fuld plays the game with a reckless-abandonment that fans love.
A story in the New Yorker about Sam Fuld – Tampa Bay Ray’s scrappy outfielder.Super Sam, written by Ben McGrath.
“Fuld attributes his kamikaze style of play to the teen-age realization that he was going to be “pretty limited physically,” and that fearlessness was his only option.”
Fuld’s style of play reminds me of a young Bill Buckner1 before he mangled his ankle.
Bart Giamatti is doing cartwheels of joy in his grave.
