Softball With Your Pastoral Candidate?

One of these dates I'm going to be a pastoral candidate, so ideas like this one from Bryan Chapell's "Christ-Centered Preaching" get my attention:

Effective ministry corresponds so much with the character of a minister that theologian John Sanderson advised people to play softball with pastoral candidates interviewing for a position.  'Then on a close play at second base,' Sanderson said (with his tongue mostly in cheek), 'call him out when he is really safe.  Then see what happens!'
