Lombo with number 1 takes a walk. Perfect. See Eddie Yost, number 1 through most of the '50s, who had such a good eye that umpires let him decide balls. If the pitch was close and Yost didn't swing, it was a ball. (Same with Ted Williams)

See http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/y/yosted01.shtml

Compare the walks to the Ks. Career 1600 walks, 900 strikeouts.
