Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.
....one thing even I know after many years of intramural, church league, & city league ball is that, as a fielder, you never EVER EVER try to get a little extra velocity on your throws outside of practice. The difference between a a normal, controlled throw & one with a little extra heat on it is microseconds at most, and 95% of any extra-hard throws either sail, wind up in the dirt, or miss the target by at least 10 ft. The ultimate unforced error. Ah hates throwin' errors.
