Congrats to Rick Ankiel - years after his collapse under pressure as a big league pitcher, he's finally returned to the major leagues as an outfielder. Starting in 2005 he switched from pitcher to outfielder, and finally he's back, hitting a home run in his debut game last night (see above). This is an impressive example of determination and dedication under long odds and low expectations. Sports Illustrated had an "Ankiel Watch" for years, but it stopped months ago, a little too early.
