  1. Pitcher

    In baseball, the pitcher is the player who throws the baseball from the pitcher's mound toward the catcher to begin each play, with the goal of retiring a batter, who attempts to either make contact with the pitched ball or draw a walk. In the numbering system used to record defensive plays, the pitcher is assigned the number 1. Traditionally, the pitcher also bats. Starting in 1973 with the American League and spreading throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the hitting duties of the pitcher have generally been given over to the position of designated hitter, a cause of some controversy. The National League in Major League Baseball and the Japanese Central League are among the remaining leagues which have not adopted the designated hitter position.

Hartzfeld walked out of the hospital 19 days later wearing his team’s baseball cap, and determined to go back to school and his sport. He was back in class less than a month after the accident, with his jaw wired shut, wearing a tracheotomy tube and a gastrostomy tube.
