Activity overview:

3 slides

In the spring of 1996, the first softball game of the school year was to be played in the afternoon during PE. We always played on a dusty field just beside the school. When the two captains chose their teams they always chose the other boys first so Ted and I waited until the very end to be chosen. After all the other players had batted, I came up to bat with two runners on base. As my teammates urged me to try for a walk, I heard players on the other team yelling...

In the spring of 1996, the first softball game of the school year was to be played in the afternoon during PE. We always played on a dusty field just beside the school. When the two captains chose their teams they always chose the other boys first so Ted and I waited until the very end to be chosen. After all the other players had batted, I came up to bat with two runners on base. As my teammates urged me to try for a walk, I heard players on the other team yelling "Easy out, easy out." I was determined not to make it an easy out. I kept my eyes on the ball as it came towards me. After waiting for just the right second I swung the bat with all my might. Instantly the ball flew through the air, right over the right fielder's head as I ran past first base and onto second. Later in the game when it was my turn to bat again, I made it to third base. Ever since that game I have not been the last one chose for the team.
