When I was 12 years old I attended a game of the Trenton Thunder, my local AA baseball team. It was a schoolnight and suddenly it started raining very hard in the 8th inning, with the game tied. As we waited during the rain delay, it got later and later, but I convinced my father that we had to wait until the game restarted no matter how late it was, because I was so excited to see who would win. As a result, we ended up waiting until 1am, and that became the first time I had gone to sleep after 12 midnight. In the end, the Thunder won the game around 130am. It was so exciting, and I will never forget that moment and how baseball allowed me to stay up past 12 midnight for the first time.
