SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle:
A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

Germany beat Brazil 5-1 yesterday in the Women's U20 World Cup.
I think it's about time the UN stepped in on this one before the Germans annex Brasilia.

Robin Williams never did a real sports movie, but he had a fantastic sports fan moment in "Good Will Hunting" that I thought was amazing (0:45-2:24 of this scene):

Well, this is one of my favorites of his, and it comes pretty close to a real sports movie. And that scene from Good Will Hunting was great.

Does anybody know a good place to find hitting statistics for pitchers? Most sites I have checked have no hitting data for pitchers.

baseball-reference.com has hitting stats for pitchers...

MeatSaber is right. If you pay for a play-index account at Baseball Reference, you can search their database for just about anything.
Since 2000, order of pitchers hitting seasons (by OPS+), minimum 20 PA in the season, at least 80% of their games as a pitcher.
Since 1901, order of pitcher hitting careers (by OPS+), minimum 100 PA, at least 80% of their games as a pitcher.
Since 1901, most HR by a pitcher in their career, minimum 100 PA, at least 80% of their games as a pitcher.
Longest streak of games with at least one PA where there were no hits or walks, by a pitcher, since 1914.
I can't imagine not paying my annual membership to have silly fun like this.
