New York Yankee's second baseman Chuck Knoblauch has had trouble
throwing the baseball accurately for a few years now. Because of this,
manager Joe Torre is going to try him in left field. The second base
position is sometimes called *4,* but also called *2B.* In an
Associated Press article, printed in the March 20th San Francisco
Chronicle, Knoblauch is quoted as saying, "Have to scratch off the
2B... It's 2B not to be."
Baseball players are not known for quoting Shakespeare accurately. Or
maybe Knoblauch has a copy of ur-Hamlet.
