The good news for Rhodes College closer Nick Bosma is that he’s going viral. The bad news for Bosma is why he’s going viral: a possible viral infection. After taking the mound with a two run lead against Franklin College in the DIII regionals yesterday, our protagonist walked the leadoff man, then puked his guts out behind the mound.
But this story has a happy ending. Bosma waved off any attention from concerned coaches and induced a key double play to secure the win. Someone else cleaned up the vomit. A win-win. Well, a loss for the grounds crew.
There are entire weekend morning rec leagues built around the challenge of not booting from the night before. All part of the game.
