This guy is sort of the anti - Jim Abbott. Two fully functional arms, but one is always occupied.

Any clips of him fielding a comebacker to the mound, then having to make the excruciating decision about whether or not to let go of himself and throw the runner out?

Can someone design Chris Resop a new athletic supporter??

There already is one. It's shaped like Chris Resop.

Perhaps he's praying, as in a line from Psalm 23: "My cup runneth over".

Pardon the sacrilege, I know it's Good Friday and all, but I couldn't resist.

McFarlane Toys needs to do a Chris Resop action figure with kung fu grip.

Begorrah, I'm goin' to hell.
