Last year I had a student in my classroom who was a huge baseball fan. He watched the beginning of every Pirates game each night and then read about the end of the game the next morning. I had legitimate baseball conversations with this kid just about every morning. If I happened to miss the ending of a game, I could count on him to fill me in on the details. His favorite player was Andrew McCutchen and he wanted to grow his hair in dreads just like Cutch.
Needless to say, I loved that kid.
During one of the book fairs our PTO held last year, I was browsing the nonfiction section and stumbled upon a book that was basically an encyclopedia of baseball. ‘Baseball’ by James E. Kelley and distributed DK Eyewitness books featured sections dedicated to nearly every facet of the game and reviewed important baseball terminology and strategies amongst other things.
It was a pretty cool book.
Upon closer inspection, you can see that Pedro Sandoval was manning the hot corner that day for the Giants. Wait, who’s on third? No, Who’s on first.
Just contributing to the misinformation of America I see.
