Brian Wilson…Ping Pong Champ

Brian Wilson continues to impress.

Tuesday, he started the first game (spring training, regular season or otherwise) of his nine-year career, and against the first batter…dude unleashed a knuckleball.

The Los Angeles Dodgers closer has yet to be scored on this spring. Matter of fact, the last time he allowed anyone to cross the plate was back on September 7, and, incidentally, was the only run he gave up all last season.

And, now, well…now there’s this.

Yup, turns out “The Beard” is a mean ping pong player. But, really…are you surprised by anything Wilson does at this point?

About Shawn Anderson

Shawn Anderson is that guy who, instead of sitting there talking about the game going on around him, is talking wise about the history of baseball. He believes baseball figures such as Tommy John, Harold Baines, Ron Guidry and Billy Martin deserve their own plaque somewhere if not in Cooperstown. You can follow him on Twitter at @HOVG.
