Down by eleven, no problem

Down by Elven, no problem

“Baseball is made for kids, only grown-ups screw it up.” ~ Bob Lemon

The first base side of the bleachers is filled with excited parents. Meanwhile, the third base side is quiet, as parents and families sit glumly staring at the field. When the final out of the inning is made, I ask a kid what the score is. “We’re losing 11 to nothing, he says with a grin.” “And that’s a good thing?” I ask. As he grabs his bat and helmut, he shrugs, “We haven’t had our chance to bat yet!”

This game is great…
