The very few who've managed the trick share how they did it.
Even though the draft is still almost a month away, you might be a bit overloaded on Stephen Strasburg at this point. Never before has an amateur been so well-known among even casual fans before being selected. How many times can one write about the perfect frame, the triple-digit heat, and the plus-plus breaking ball? With platitude after platitude getting thrown out there-is he the best college pitcher of the decade, best amateur pitcher ever, and so on-it's important to note that Strasburg is mortal. He's given up 13 runs this year, and 12 of them were earned. There have been 48 hits off Strasburg this year, including, believe it or not, three home runs. So, what's the secret? What's it like to go deep against the Next Big Thing? To find out, I tracked down the three players who have taken Strasburg deep this year, as well as the one player with three base knocks against him.
