Re: TOOTBLAN and other tales of infamy on the diamond
We're behind by 2, but on the comeback trail. Wild pitcher just cannot find the plate. He's walking everybody that steps up to the plate. I'm up with the bases loaded and of course the Coach puts on the take sign on because he's gonna make the kid throw a strike. With a 2-0 count the pitcher groves one down the center of the plate and.....I swing. Weak grounder to second for a double play that ends the game.
"Even a bad day at the ballpark beats the snot out of most other good days. I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me."
