almost like playing on asphault. Zona has learned to hit the ball hard on the ground- almost like topping the ball. It hits the ground a couple of feet in front of home plate and takes a real high bounce - by the time you field it and throw to 1st base it is too late to throw the runner our. Impossible to defend. We could do the same thing but do not have the experience to do it nearly as well as zona. They would laugh you out of a baseball stadium trying to win this way.
