The Bat Man Does Tricks

Remember Josh Womack of the Long Beach Armada who had the neat little bat trick? Well, it turns out he was only getting started, he’s got a whole bunch more in his arsenal and he’s slowly letting them out as the Armada see a possible way to drum up attention for a player who otherwise hasn’t been too successful.

Now, I may be crazy, but I wonder if just some of the time that Womack spent practicing these tricks could have been better spent practicing actual baseball skills if he might have done better than a minor league career .257 average and an OPS of .702? Either way, these bat tricks are totally cool.

He’s a WITCH!

The Long Beach Armada are an independent league baseball team featuring such luminaries on their roster as Jose Lima and Hideki Irabu. That’s right, Mr. Fat Toad HIMSELF is back in the game, trying to make a comeback in the indy’s. Also on the roster is Josh Womack, a former 2nd round pick of the Seattle Mariners (2002) who was subsequently released. The 24 year old OF may have only reached AAA in the Mariners organization but he has at least one thing going for him, he can do this totally awesome bat trick.

And yes, if you’re wondering, it was Lima who calls out “Nice pants” to Womack, who replies with a suitable response, “Nice Face.”
