Baseball Shoe

I couldn't say for sure which team she played for, but it was obvious she wasn't new to the game. It might be a stretch to think I'd ever score with her, or even get to first base. The most I could hope for was to get through the next couple of hours without striking out completely. I was out of my league, and I knew it.

Every shoe tells a story — I’m feeling pretty darned cocky about the way I captured the perspective of the hat, the dirt on the ball and the tape on the bat. I’m feeling so good about myself, I’m spitting and grabbing my crotch right now (not really).

 

I used to live in Cleveland, and was a fair-weather Indians fan just like everybody else. Now that I live in New Orleans, a city with no Major League Baseball team, I miss having a really good reason to hate the Yankees. They were our arch-rivals, although I always wondered if they were even aware of that, as we were certainly not theirs.
