Remember Rick Ankiel?? That guy who threw absolute gas, but had ZERO idea where it was going?
Yeah he’s thinking about making a comeback.
He made a pretty successful career as a hitter, but I don’t know about this. Being 39-years-old doesn’t help either.
Set that aside though, he had the yipps. You can definitely get over that, but it’s not a simple fix by any stretch. Some people can figure it out in a week, some months, some years. But it’s not a guarantee that you ever recover from it.
Ankiel must have figured it out, but what happens if he lets one fly again? Can he get past that?
I hope he goes for it, would be one of my favorite comeback stories.
