Had a second board interview yesterday. They asked me one of the oddball questions. I mentioned how I participated in some baseball practices at my school, not as an official team member or something. This was the question: "You are a catcher, the batter steps up to the plate and you recognize this kid. You played with him before, and you know that he's weak to curve balls. You give the signal to the pitcher to throw a curve ball, pitcher shakes his head. You give the signal again, the pitcher still says no. You go up to the pitcher and say "Hey, I know this kid, he's weak to curve balls, you have to throw a curve ball." The pitcher replies "No, I don't like this kid, he's been getting on my nerves, I'm going to throw a fastball!" What do you say to him next?" I felt that I gave a good answer to this, I basically said that he was letting his emotions get the best of him, particularly in a military environment that's very dangerous. What I didn't realize, however, was that in Baseball the Pitcher has the final verdict, or as some of my baseball friends said they could be considered the "commanding officer" The second part of a question was: "OK, so the pitcher throws the fastball anyhow and now that ball goes over is head as the pitcher hits a home run. What do you say to him now" This was the part where I really messed up, I said something like "I would want to make sure that they learned from their mistakes" or something. I shared the question with my Baseball friends and coach, they all said that you should've said nothing because it'd be pointless pretty much. I'm worried, but other than that I think the interview went exceedingly well.
