42Story - Early Baseball Experience

Discussion created by miyagi on Apr 13, 2013

I spent the early days of my youth growing up as a military “brat” on Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan.  We were fortunate to have a huge empty field located behind the housing area that we lived where several of the kids in the neighborhood would play baseball.  We would play for hours in the heat of the day with high humidity that would be unbearable to me today.  It was certainly a very memorable time that has stayed dear to me for more than 40 years and is where I became a true fan of baseball by living the dream.
