This Falls Under The “Holy Shit” Category
Posted by Matt on April 17, 2008
A Japanese high school baseball team recently surrendered 66 runs. Yes…66. Honestly, there arent enough cuss words to emphasize 66 runs in — wait for it — 1 and 1/3 innings.
“The coach of Kawamoto technical high school threw in the towel to spare his pitcher’s arm with his team losing 66-0 with just one batter out in the bottom of the second.
The hapless hurler had already sent down over 250 pitches, allowing 26 runs in the first inning and 40 in the second before Kawamoto asked for mercy.
‘At that pace the pitcher would have thrown around 500 pitches in four innings,’ Kawamoto’s coach was quoted as saying. ‘There was a danger he could get injured.'”
Um, 250 pitches? Was Dusty Baker coaching Kawamoto Technical High School? ZING!
There are a lot of jokes to be made about this situation, most of them being offensive so…yeah, 66 runs. Just let that sink in.
In related news, the powers that be allowed the beating to be recorded as just a simple 9-0 loss for Kawamoto. Which is kind of like offering to rebuild a country after dropping a nuclear bomb on it.
