Fort Worth Weekly – For The Love Of The New Game: October 21, 2009 Mike Matthews nailed a line drive into right center field and made it to second base. His teammate followed that with a high fly to center, which the fielder caught for an out. When Matthews tagged up and raced for third, the center fielder hummed the ball to the shortstop, who fired it directly at Matthews. The ball missed him and rolled into the street, and the 27-year-old massage therapist headed to home plate. Whoa. How could a baseman get away with throwing directly at a base runner?
