Don’t Ya Love Those Baseball Analogies?

So today was a big day for me. I was getting a tryout for the major league team. One at-bat to impress the scouts and I pretty much needed to hit it out of the park.

I watched a strike or two fly past me early on but before I knew it I had worked my way to a full count. I stayed alive by fouling off a few pitches. Finally I laced a clean single through the drawn-in infield.

Not exactly the home run that I was hoping for. Not exactly the kind of thing that gets you called up to the majors. Still, it wasn’t an embarrassment. It was just a nice clean single. The side is not retired just yet. There’s still a small glimmer of hope that the single will be good enough – but I doubt it.
