Pinch Me It’s Over

Mark Sweeney has the 2nd most pinch hits in MLB history

No ballplayer strives for the title of professional pinch hitter, but I must say, this role could easily be the best job in all of baseball – if not the world.

You get more off days than on days, the pressure rarely exceeds that of a game-winning at-bat and although you’re not an everyday guy, you’re not the bullpen catcher either.

Plus, the job pays pretty well too.
