19th Century Catcher's Hands

No those are not my hands (although sometimes I feel like they are) they are the hands of Doug Allison a 19th Century catcher. I truly believe I broke both my hands this year catching (1886 style) which proves the fact that what we 19th Century vintage ballists do is closer to the actual game than people realize or give us credit for. Its too bad more modern day ballists don't man-up and give it a try. Personally, I think they would shribble-up instead. Anyways, the challenge still stands...if you are out and want to take on the Wheelmen in 2011 contact me.
