yeah, I don't know. I went to high school with a guy who got cut the first day of tryouts for football and baseball... in his tryout hitting he hit a ball in to the tennis courts (like 460' away) a bomb. He was big and fast, but he was weird. Goofy. Heck, he could make grades, but, cut. Coaches just didn't want him around.
He went to Cypress College and went out for football. His first year he was an all conference tight end, he played on the baseball team and started. He was a beast. He always had fast cars and got into some trouble and they did not allow him to play the second year.
Obviously, having the "right stuff" is about more than just being able to hit the ball, literally and figuratively. Was he merely "weird" or was he trouble?
