There’s an old expression: “Act like you’ve been there before.” But that advice isn’t always easy to follow.
Take Nolan McCafferty, for example. During one game in 2018, he walked up to the plate in the bottom of the tenth inning. His Pomona Pitzer Sagehens trailed Pacific Lutheran 16-14. There were two runners on and one out. He took a practice swing, stepped into the batter’s box and peered out at the pitcher.
