GuyRule #71.0: Throwing Harder than is Necessary
"If you're playing baseball, you have to be willing to throw the ball as hard as you possibly can, even though throwing it too hard will in some way or another screw up the play. You've gotta let the other guys know, especially during warm-ups, that you can throw hard. At some point in time when you're warming up, you reach that point when it's expected that you've gotta show the other guy that, hey, I've got an arm, I've got a cannon, so you've got to fire the ball as hard as you can at the guy to let him know. Also, everybody's gotta try at some point in time to throw a curve ball. It's a Guy Rule. Even though most people don't know how to throw a curve ball. They have to try and throw it." -G
