9 and 2

Discussion created by leejul06 on Apr 7, 2013

Watching the bottom of the 9th, bases loaded with two outs and 2 runs down is the most stressful part of a game.  Heroes are made but from one side.  The hitter staggered into the batter's box and clutched his bat.  Looked deep into the pitchers eyes and took a first pitch strike.  The crowd boo'd thinking it too outside the strike zone.  The next pitch fouled off to the first base line.  Then, despite the pitcher's count the next pitch hear the crowd cheering.  Then a reverberation of the "smack" of wood on ball like thunder in the distance.  Without seeing where the ball went, I knew the result.  Heroes made.
