Prepare your eyes for the most majestic thing you have ever seen.
Ok, you ready? Wah-lah!
This is St. Thomas University Pitcher Ben Ancheff, and he was on his way to leading the Bobcats to a NAIA World Series championship — until he was forced to leave the game with an arm injury.
Heck, he even makes Bartolo Colon look like he’s got the physique of Calista Flockhart.
He’s got AGILITY. Look at that feline quickness off the mound.
…and most importantly: HE HITS BOMBS!!! (and by bombs I mean he had a .417 average, 2 home runs, and 8 RBIs as a junior in high school … BUT STILL!)
Yeah, his ERA might be a little high … yeah, his Strikeout/Walk ratio isn’t ideal …
…but what makes Ben so perfect is that he’s not perfect. He’s one of us, an inspiration to every “Ugh, I’ve gained 10 pounds the past month, but, I don’t want to get off the couch today — I just want to sit here and stuff my face with pizza rolls” guy out there. Ancheff is a shining example that you can be the pizza roll-eating bro you’ve always wanted to be … get a scholarship to play sports … AND get the ladies:
Ben Ancheff, I think I speak for everyone when I say: never change. You are beautiful “in every single way…”
