As my second turn to bat rolled around and I settled into the batter’s box, my only goal was to make contact and get on base. As I waited for a good pitch to hit, Jeff let a fastball go, and I swung, not a hard swing, just a smooth easy swing of the bat.
Send Your Story!
It took me 10 years to complete this project, and hopefully, my next project will not take that long, but it’s all up to you.
My next project is your story, so tell me YOUR STORIES when you played youth baseball, softball, tee-ball or when you played made-up games in the yard; there’s a good chance you could read your story in my next book, Just Like Me: Amateur Stories from the Sandlot. If enough stories are received to publish, proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the community service, charity, or foundation of the author’s choice.
Your story can be related to one of the following categories. Game memories, hometown & family, starting baseball, baseball cards, coaches, nicknames, made-up games, your equipment and the fields you played on, favorite teams & players, let’s hear some “chatter,” your first major league game you attended, or your wisdom for the future of youth baseball & softball. Or, if you choose, you can make up your own category.
