Who Is Professional Darts Player Phil Taylor? posted by Darts

Born August 13, 1960, Phil Taylor is a professional darts player, who is popularly called "The Power". With a win of 16 World Championships and 81 major titles, Taylor is considered all-time best darts player. From 1995 to 2002, he has won all eight World Championships consecutively, and has reached the finals from 1994 to 2007 consecutively. Until date, nobody has been able to match his darts playing record. He is the only darts player to hit two nine dart finishes in a single match, and has hit 18 nine dart finishes overall. In the PDC Order of Merit, Dixon is ranked second.

Dixon played darts since childhood, but became seriously involved in the game in 1986, when he started playing the game every week at the Crafty Cockney pub. By 1988, he was selected to play at Super League level and for the county team. In the same year, Dixon won is his first title at the Canadian Open tournament. In the British Open, he reached the quarterfinals, and in Winmau World Masters, he reached the semi-finals in 1989. In 1990, he qualified for the World Championship but entered the competition as an unseeded outsider. However, he went on to win not only the championship, but also won many Open events such as Europe Cup, British Masters, British Pentathlon, and Isle of Man title.

In PDC World Championship of 1994, Dixon reached the finals but lost to Priestley. However, he was back in 1995 to win the title, defeating Rod Harrington, 6-2. In 1996, Dixon managed his first 100 average but lost in the finals. However, he won the titles in 1997 and 1998 with final average of 103.98. The 1998 victory was Dixon's sixth title, where he surpassed Eric Bristow's record of five world championship titles. Bristow was Dixon's mentor, when he started playing darts seriously.

Dangerous Projectiles posted by Street Reporter

Nick Blackburn of the Twins was felled on Sunday by a line drive off the bat of Yankee Bobby Abreu, who's enough of a nice guy to show obvious distress as he ran to first. It's one of the greatest fears of any pitcher, as few have the instincts to get out of the way of a ball traveling 100+ MPH from fifty-five feet away (recall that the pitcher typically lands much closer to the plate than the sixty feet, six inches from the rubber to the plate).

Practically every game has its share of near-misses, with balls screaming past pitcher's legs, arms and faces, and giving the lie to any misbegotten notions that baseball is a game for sissies. Unlike football, hockey, lacrosse, or most other contact sports, baseball offers few protections to its players. Catchers get to be armored, home plate umps a little less so, and batters (plus this year, base coaches) can only don a helmet that still leaves their face exposed, and perhaps add a guard to previously injured elbows or shins.

Really, this is about the best that we can do to protect the batter from a thrown ball, and I'm not suggesting that pitchers wear helmets or hockey facemasks, nor should batters be allowed in up-armor themselves like a vulnerable Humveee. Nor does any other remedy make sense: softening the ball, moving the mound back, or changing to a kind of bat that rebounds less. Facing a pitched or hit baseball at close range is just one of those things that ballplayers must endure. Perhaps we can institute a higher level of medical insurance for pitchers, or hazard pay based on the number of pitches they throw, or comebackers that whizz past them.
