April 21 | Heeeey Batter Batter....
With the summer came softball season.

Melissa played shortstop at first, but worked her way to the pitcher’s mound. She had one of the most consistent pitches in her teams.

She was number 6.

I sat on the bleachers and screamed for her even when the crowd was small and no one was making a sound. I heckled the opposing team at bat. I learned chants and cheers. If it had been a school team, one could have said I had school spirit.

She went to Anchorage one year with the All-Star team. The Anchorage teams were formidable: they all looked over 20 years. But it was great to be there and get the All-Stars baseball cap.

Now the summer comes and I am going to miss sitting on hard/cold/wet/hot bleachers.

I am going to miss cheering when she knocks one into deep left, or when she strikes another batter out.
I am going to miss my love for sports.
