My baseball story is about how I met my childhood dog while playing baseball. I and a couple of other boys were playing baseball behind the middle school one afternoon when one of my friends hit the ball particularly far. I chased after it and almost tripped over a dog laying in a drainage ditch. He was injured. We later found out he had been hit by a car (only side-swiped though). We took him to the vet, who stitched him up, and adopted him. He lived with us for many years.
