Hello, My Name is…

It’s late January. No New York or Boston teams are playing any games worth paying attention to. There’s no baseball.  It’s (sort of) cold.  The Road Rules/Real World Duel is over.  What the hell is there to talk about (besides Murray Chass, of course)?  Because of this dearth of activity, we figured this was a perfect time to feature someone we may never hear from or see again, give a little-known ballplayer some serious internet time: the Red Sox’ final pick (#1499 overall – think about that!) in the 2006 amateur lottery draft.  As a tease, some career highlights:

  • 2005 – Made 15 appearances, all in relief
  • 2005 – got save vs. San Jose State (4/3), getting the final two outs, including a strikeout
  • 2004 – gave up no runs in 4.2 innings vs. Winthrop (3/15)
  • favorites include Taco Bell, the movie, "The Big Lebowski," and actor Denzel Washington

So without further adue please welcome, from the University of Hawaii, Mr. Darrell Fisherbaugh.

  • It’s guys like this that make me think I actually have a chance to pitch in professional baseball. I can throw some pretty serious heat, I just don’t know where it’s going most if not all of the time. I think I just need a coach, a really good coach, then a scout will see me and then….

  • Rick Ankiel pitched in the majors and had the same problem so its not always a deal killer.

  • Now that the Duel is over the next MTV Road Rules starts up at the end of January and the next Challenge The Inferno 3 should air in the next few months.
    You can see that 83 million people watched The Duel which was posted on the MM Agency Real World Road Rules Blog.
