Full Count – Baseball pitchers, not beer pitchers

When I read the words, ‘Full Count’, I thought beer. Then, when in the next sentence, pitchers performance slid in, my beer gut got excited. Well, Full Count isn’t a beer app. Nope. It is an app to help coaches and parents with the little league, and I think that means baseball. A pitcher is that little tyke who throws a ball. S/he is also the poor sod whose performance numbers Full Count tracks. This pitching app helps track performance for an inning, game, or season so you can track the usefulness of training regimens.

The two gold records now under his belt are:

Annie Villeneuve - Annie Villeneuve Annie Villeneuve – Annie Villeneuve, 9.99$

The Canadian Tenors - The Perfect Gift The Canadian Tenors – The Perfect Gift, 10.99$

One my favourite sports is billiards. I love both the American pool (mostly 8-ball) and the more difficult Russian variant, pyramid.

Well, now you can find out!
