Schroeder, in his catcher's gear, walks up to Charlie Brown, who is standing atop the pitcher's mound, and says,"Let's go over our signals again, Charlie Brown."  Schroeder says,"We'll keep 'em simple..."<BR><BR> He puts up a finger and says,"One finger will mean a fast ball, two fingers will mean a curve, three will mean a drop..."  He continues,"Four fingers is a knuckleball, five is a slider and six is a fork-ball."<BR><BR> He continues,"Seven fingers will mean an upshoot, eight fingers a duster, nine fingers a knuckle curve, ten fingers a palm ball..."<BR><BR> He continues,"Eleven fingers will mean a pitch-out, twelve a roundhouse-curve, thirteen a change-up and fourteen your fast side-armer..."<BR><BR> He continues,"Fifteen fingers will mean a sinker, sixteen fingers a screwball, and seventeen fingers an overhead curve."<BR><BR> He asks,"Okay?"  Charlie Brown replies,"Okay!"  Schroeder walks away.  He stops and turns back saying,"On second thought, I have a better idea..."<BR><BR> He walks off concluding,"Throw anything you want!"<BR><BR>
