LSU SPORTS ARTICLE: Today (4/23) I posted a baseball article about a Vanderbilt pitcher who can pitch either left handed OR right handed. Pitchers who can do that effectively are VERY RARE indeed. See the article in the LSU section.
* * * TODAY’S FEATURE ARTICLE * * *
Today I posted an oil related article from Yahoo.Finance/Reuters titled “Fewer U.S. Rigs May Not Cut Shale Oil Output – Exxon CEO“. The Exxon CEO gives his explanation as to why he believes a drop in rig count does NOT necessarily mean that the Shale oil output will drop much. According to the article, “The precipitous drop in the U.S. drilling rig count over the past few months may not cause a long-term drop in shale oil output as the productivity of new wells continues to rise, Exxon Mobil Corp’s chief executive said on Tuesday“. It’s an interesting article and I encourage you to read it.

BREAKING GUN CONTROL NEWS: I’ll ONLY post here when I add a new article to the “Gun Control in America” page.
American gun owners and defenders of the 2nd Amendment NEED HELP in fighting off the Government and State ‘gun control’ advocates! If you are not currently a member of the NRA (National Rifle Association) or the NAGR (National Association for Gun Rights), you are urged to join TODAY.
Here’s how (the NRA is the most powerful and influential):

I have resumed my update of our website’s Louisiana ethanol free gas list. As I indicted when I began this considerable effort, I will update the list on the website when I am completed. This is a VERY time consuming effort, so bear with me.
I finished Livingston Parish (going alphabetically), and am now working on Orleans Parish. I had stopped working on the gas list update during the peak of football season. I will resume working on the list later this week.

GAME COMMENTS: The Tigers beat Texas A&M in game one on Thursday evening with a ‘walk off’ single by Danny Zardon down the 3rd base line which drove in Jared Foster from 2nd base to win the game 4-3.

Game 2 on Friday will be shown on the SECN Alternate channel (or SECN+) and the final game on Saturday will be shown on ESPN.
* * * LSU SPORTS ARTICLE * * *
Today I posted a baseball sports article that I think you will find especially interesting! The story is about a Vanderbilt pitcher who can pitch with EITHER his left hand and ALSO his right hand. He has a custom made glove that is reversible. I watched this young man pitch in the bottom of the 9th inning when Vandy was playing South Carolina a few weekends ago. The first two Carolina batters were lefties so he pitched to them left handed. He struck out the 1st batter and forced a fly ball for the 2nd batter. The 3rd Carolina batter was a rightie, do he switched his glove and pitched to him right handed, AND, he struck him out! That a truly amazing young man……you don’t see very many pitchers who can do that!
NOTE – INCREDIBLE HR STATS: Earlier this week, I asked Scott Long of ‘Dandy Don.com’ if he had any stats on how many home runs the Tigers had scored this season compared to the same number of games last season. Here’s what he found as of April 9, 2015: “So far this year, LSU has hit 33 home runs (now 38). Last year at this time (after 34 games), the Tigers had hit only 16. LSU is only 8 home runs shy of matching last year’s total of 41. The Tigers home run leader is Jared Foster with 8. Alex Bregman has 7, while Kade Scivicque, Conner Hale and Chris Chinea each have four“. Folks, that is a 106% increase in the number of home runs this season compared to the same number of games last season. How much of this improvement is due to the new ‘flat seam’ ball or just better hitting? Either way, that is a VERY IMPRESSIVE stat!
SWITCH PITCHING 101
Aubrey McCarty – Vanderbilt
Hometown: Doerun, Georgia
College: Vanderbilt (Class of 2017)
2013 MLB Draft: Selected by the SF Giants in the 35th round (#1062 overall)
High School: Coquitt County HS, Moultrie, GA (Class of 2013)
Summer Team: Home Plate Chilidogs
Positions: BHP (both hand pitcher), 1B
Ht/Wt: 6-3″/210 lbs
Glove: Mizuno ambidextrous glove
Pitches: fastball, cutter, curveball, change-up
Velocity: 92 mph RHP; 85 mph LHP
Aubrey McCarty is a switch hitter and both handed pitcher (BHP) recruited to play for top-ranked Vanderbilt University. McCarty is listed on the 2015 Vandy roster as an infielder and redshirt freshman. He chose Vanderbilt for “great academics and baseball program’s success.”
“Aubrey is without question, one of the more unique players that we have had in our program. He hits from both sides, has the ability to throw from both sides, pitches and can play several positions. We will probably try and scale down much of this so he can settle in as a hitter during his freshman year. Aubrey has an exciting upside to his game.” – Coach Tim Corbin, Vanderbilt University
As a high school pitcher, McCarty’s velocity reached 89 mph (Perfect Game 6/29/2012). Throws a fastball, cutter, curveball and changeup from both sides (watch video). At 6’3″, McCarty also plays first base.
As a 16-year-old, his throwing velocity topped out at 86 mph right-handed and 83 mph left-handed.
McCarty started pitching both ways when he was 11-years-old. He is naturally left-handed, but learned to play baseball right-handed. When he was 13 or 14, he hurt his right arm, so he worked hard on throwing left-handed. Now he throws well with either arm. He committed to play for Vanderbilt as a two way player.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder, who is a rare ambidextrous pitcher, led the Packers with a 9-2 record and a 2.86 ERA with 49 strikeouts in 58.2 innings last season (2012). Moultrie Observer
* NEW CHANGES TO ETHANOL FREE GAS LIST *
We removed XXXX ethanol FREE location in Louisiana recently:
We added ONE new ethanol FREE location in Mississippi recently:
Quick Stop – 415 E Northside Dr, Clinton, MS (Hinds County) – all 3 grades are EO – Thanks to the Store owner for letting me know.
NOTE: If any reader locates a store that is selling ethanol FREE gas but is not on our list, PLEASE send me the information asked for on the “Ethanol Facts” page so we can add it to the list!
We encourage all readers to patronize retailers who sell ethanol FREE gas. If they are not profitable selling EO, they may convert to sell ethanol gas and stores with EO will become harder and harder to find. ——————————————————————————————————-
Have a GREAT week readers!
