Tonight is our last game of the Little League season. It's been a good year: the coaches have been positive, patient and nice; the parents have been well-behaved; the kids seem to have had a good time and improved in their skills. And that's what Little League is supposed to be all about.
This particular cartoon reminds me of one of my sons who always managed to get on base. His skill wasn't in hitting, however. For some reason he was a ball magnet at bat -- he'd reach first by getting hit with the ball. Oh, he'd swing occasionally. Every now and then he'd get a hit. But we could always count on him to get on base...one way or another!
