Re: TOOTBLAN and other tales of infamy on the diamond
Senior year in high school we were in the sectional finals after a bad season. We fought hard and we were down 2-1 in the bottom of the seventh, bases loaded 2 outs I'm up with our best hitter up next. I work the count full and foul a few balls off, it's at least a 10 pitch at bat, then swing at ball four in my eyes to end the game. I felt awful and still think about it 20+ years later.
I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.
