Just a short story.  My grandfather was a ballplayer when he was younger.  He was offered a minor league contract, but he turned it down to stay near home.  One of his favorite stories was about how he got a hit off of Satchel Paige.  When I first heard the story he got a bunt hit.  Later in life it turned into a single, and then a double.  When he was older and had Alzheimers, we'd talk about that great homerun he got off of Satchel Paige.  We'll never know what really happened, but I was proud of his accomplishments... even if it was just a bunt single.
