    Dude is impressive strong...for any age let alone how old he is.

    Deadlifting 500lbs is not a casual event for anyone who has ever tried it. Great exercise though when you combine it with bench and squats.

    Can't really tell anything about his pitching from the video.

    Hope he makes it. Would be a great story.

    I would like to see video of college or minor league batters hitting off of him. From the video the pitch doesn't seem to move a whole lot. It is hard to tell much when he is hitting off a tee. I wish the guy well, but this video isn't very telling.

    There are other things he could be doing....just like the rest of us......like going to Grammar School.

    I wish him luck, I hope he makes it. I also was wondering what was up with the missionary in the video.

    Why is the missionary doing the interview and producing the video? Don't they other things they should be doing?

    @Fred T
    He didn't say he could bench 500 pounds. He said he could dead lift 500 pounds. There's a difference.

    Bench 500 lbs my eye... just look at the guy. No way.

    And maybe he hits a ball 500 feet with a fungo bat.

    This is all hype. I saw him down here in Phoenix with Lasorda. Lasorda gave him a pat on the back and a wink and tried to get away from him as quickly as he could.
