Table Tennis Chats
Sometime after the Cary Cup Championships (March 18-20), I'm going to ask in my blog and on the forum who would attend. Assuming there is enough interest, we'll have a test chat, and then I'll start scheduling guests - coaches and top players.
Ping-Pong and third baseman J.J. Hardy of the Baltimore Orioles
Yep, he's a table tennis player! Here's an excerpt from an online interview:
Q: What are some things you like to do when you're not playing ball?
J.J. I've got a lot of little hobbies. Fishing – now that we're out here in Florida for Spring Training, I fish pretty much every single day when we're done here. In the off-season I spend a lot of time playing Ping Pong, try to keep my game up there. Not as much golf anymore, I used to golf quite a bit. Kind of shot that down, now more Ping Pong and fishing.
Q: How did you get to become a Ping Pong player?
J.J. My dad was a professional tennis player, and he still teaches for a living...
