I must confess a few things. One, that as a 12-year-old Little Leaguer growing up in Boston, I could really swing the bat. Just check the clipping below and you will see that I was hitting .537 (I finished at an even .500, tops in our little 4-team league).
The other thing I must confess is that I played for the Yankees.
Why, Parkway Little League, why?!
