Bryan Fuller Throws 21 Scoreless Innings In 26 Hours For Campbellsville University

21 Scoreless Innings In 26 Hours By One Pitcher. That's A Decent Day and Two Hours Of Work.

I don't know how you feel about your right arm, but I like mine. It helps me do things like eat, type, and occasionally karate chop fools. 

Bryan Fuller of Campbellsville University, however, cares not for his right arm in the least. Which is precisely how he wound up throwing over 250 pitches in 21 scoreless innings over 26 hours. Those numbers alone just caused Kerry Wood's arm to blow out.

See, Campbellsville had fallen into the loser's bracket in its NAIA super regional, and needed to win three straight to get a NAIA World Series berth. So Fuller stepped up and told his coaches that since he'd never be a professional anyway, he'd be willing to sacrifice his arm for the team provided they kept winning.

And win they did. Kid threw a three inning save on Thursday, followed it up with a complete game shutout 25 minutes after the game he saved ended, then he threw a 77-pitch complete game shutout the next day. On top of all this, the two complete game shutouts came against a team that had won 26 straight games before running into Fuller.

Anyway, the NAIA World Series starts on Friday this week, and if I'm correct, Fuller is slated to start every single game for the Campbellsville in the Series.

His arm will then be donated to Mark Prior.

So you'll stick with what hasn't gotten you a lot of positive responds in recent memory just because you feel you have to stick to the moronic principal. Fine, all on you.

Yep.

BTW, what's more moronic? Me being scarcastic about every baseball success being related to 'roids or the billions of people who are serious about every baseball success being related to 'roids?

Would you pick up a new shtick already?

Nope.

And on a side note, I think it's safe to say that after this kid's run is through, he's going to live up to ur name, %.

It's stories like this that make the Q so important to sports.  Another great article %.

Except he says he doesn't want to go to the "next level". His "next level" is accounting. A life time of boring numbers that no one will pay him billions for raking up.

Right about now, this kid's arm probably has the consistency of cotton candy.

Actually, the kid doesn't believe he'll make it to the bigs and asked for the playing time. He said he doesn't care for his arm and that after he's through with his college playing days he'll be moving in to an accounting job. The kid only has himself to blame.

 Nice arm!

I remember reading about this last night and thinking, "is this a news story from the 1900's we just now discovered". I was shocked to find out it wasn't.

That's an arm still attached thanks to the power of MIGHTY PUTTY!

 U might need to detach his arm and just put it in a cooler till the next start.  That's a man's shift of work.
