Fielding Drills for Baseball Pitchers
Three letters that strike dread among pitchers of all calibers and skill level—from the majors, to high school, to even little league: ‘PFP.’ The reviled Pitchers Fielding Practice has probably been maligned since its inception, but it has its benefits and purpose. Just ask the 2006 Detroit Tigers, who saw numerous chances bobbled away through errant fielding by their pitchers throughout that World Series loss.
Music Is Losing Depth

The Banking Industry
It was deja vu in a truly high stakes, high drama meeting. It was reminiscent of a depression era Reconstruction Finance Corporation meeting of seventy-five years ago. On that day, nine large bank CEOs were told by US Treasury Secretary, Henry Paulson, Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, and FDIC Chairman, Sheila Bair that it was in their own best interest to agree to the partial nationalization of their banks by the US Treasury Department.
