He appears to be a reincarnation of Steve Sax (#6 BEIR). Not only does pitcher Jon Lester (#6) share the same inborn Brain Type, but he also can’t throw the baseball to first base.

It has been famously dubbed “Steve Sax Syndrome,” and the disease first emerged back in 1983 when Steve Sax “inexplicably became incapable of making routine throws to first base, committing 30 errors that season.” Fans sitting behind the first base dugout began wearing batting helmets as mock protection By 1989, however, Sax was cured, and the syndrome never returned again.

Jon Lester of the Chicago Cubs, however, has not been cured, and has been experiencing the same symptoms for years now. As one author writes, “The lefty can make pinpoint pitches but ask him to hold a runner at first, and it becomes an adventure.” It has gotten so bad for Lester, in fact, that on Sunday he was forced to play it safe by purposely throwing the ball directly into the ground, as a stunned crowd watched it bounce toward first base and get Brandon Barnes out. You have to see the video, which is posted below. Major League Baseball humorously Tweeted, “Half off for ground shipping.”

Yes, both Sax and Lester have struggled with controlling specific cerebral neurons, especially related to their BT. Few circumstances would tax their brains as have these 2 similar sports scenarios. Without breaking down all the angles, just note that the highly emotional and deeply pondering Q2 brain area can create some trying circumstances including impairing motor movement (especially fine motors). The key for Lester (and Sax in the past), and all athletes in sports, is to essentially stay in the brain’s anterior (front) region seeing and rhythmically reacting, not excessively ruminating or fearing consequences.
