Crash Davis plays for the Oakland A's

But his real name is Jason Kendall. Check this out:

"I had a no-hitter going through the fifth inning, and I hadn't shaken him off the whole time. Then, when I finally shook him off, he came out to the mound and told me to throw a curveball. I said, 'I'm the senior, you're the sophomore, I put you in the game.' He went back to the plate, let (the hitter) know a fastball was coming, and it got hit up the middle.''

Jason Kendall disputes that, saying he never told the hitter what was coming (and he wasn't on the bench to start the game, he was playing second). He did offer to fight his brother, though.

-From the SF Chronicle 2/27/05
here's the link to the story.

If that wasn't ripped from Bull Durham, then I don't know what is. I'm really starting to like this guy, and I haven't even seem him play yet.
