♦ Mizzou Network video of Max Scherzer's induction into the MU Athletics Hall of Fame
Max: "If you din't know it, my first hit was off Randy Johnson. So that made me a good hitter. Which brings me to Coach J. I'm a good hitter. I told you every day I could hit. I know I can pitch, but man could I hit, but you never let me hit. That, and a .220 average in 2009 . . . I think that exemplifies what I could have done, but I'll let it slide."WORD ON THE TWEET

"It is a grueling position (catching). My knees will tell you that. I've had nine knee surgeries. I've had a couple of broken thumbs, one on each hand. I can look back at it and say it's worth it to be enshrined in Cooperstown. I don't have any pain in my knees right now."
