A sufferer of the rare neuroses known as team photophobia, the Phillies cap Joe Blanton appears to be wearing was actually lowered from the rafters with a rod and reel until it hung just millimeters over his head, whereupon the picture was taken. To this day Blanton is under the impression that the photographer was just a big fan of Moneyball who owned a very bulky digital camera.

Blanton is a proud paid endorser of Tom Emanski, the instructor behind Baseball World's back to back to back A.A.U. champions.
