more improbable plunkings

HBPs of note: September 5, 2009

Garrett Anderson got hit by a pitch yesterday, which makes that his 2nd HBP of the season - tying his career high. That's just 8 for his career, in 8,907 plate appearances. That's pretty improbable. But not quite as improbable as Andy Laroche being hit by a 9th inning pitch thrown by someone named Blake Hawksworth. Blake Hawksworth? Are baseball players just making up names to sound cool now, the way they used to make up dates of birth and fake dominican birth certificates so they'd sound younger? Anyway, whatever Blake Hawksworth's real name is, he threw his first career plunk, making him the 81st Canadian ever to throw a plunk, and the 434th pitcher to do so this year.
