300 Hit .300 but don't hit Fredthebear!
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Fredthebear says hit .400 if you can, but .300 is still MLB all-star material. (That means the batter fails 70% of the time against his nine opponents in the field. Success requires perseverance, handling failures and set-backs, good days and bad, being determined to hang in there for the long haul.)

FTB will add C00 games as he comes across them. This collection will most certainly grow much larger.
