Learning the hard way

Discussion created by squonk on Apr 5, 2013

I can still remember getting my very first hit in a baseball game in grade school, beating out a little grounder to make it to first.  The next two batters walked, and I was very excited over the chance to also score my first run.


The batter hit a hard shot, I ran as hard as I could...and I made it home!  I ran back to the bench, expecting congratulations from the team, but received stern glares instead.  And that's how I learned about the need to tag up on fly balls.
