    At first I as disappointed there was no Greg Jennings. Then I realized he would play all positions by himself, and would still win.

    Greg Jennings played softball once.

    They threw him a pitch and he hit it out of the field, across several states, and it hit and killed a cow in North Dakota. The rancher sued him for what the cow was worth.

    He decided it was in his best interest not to play softball any more. That could have been a kid.

    I agree, the title is misleading.
