Re: What is the most powerful baseball memory from your childhood?
First year of t-ball. I was playing SS and a line drive was hit over my head. I closed my eyes, jumped, and snagged it. It was all downhill from there... but what a great play!
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
