Funny failures in the ball, he performed very well but he made a funny mistake, a surprise gift for his idol fan girl, a help for a friend in the competition. Marathon race, height help for the dwarf, help from two football teams for the girl’s rare fear, timely help in an accident situation on the horse track….
I had a close friend at a rival school we played against in baseball. Our senior year, my friend fell once short of his team’s all-time record going into our final game. On his first hit, I knocked him out. He hit his second and again, on the third. At the end of the last half, we had a pretty big two-goal lead as he scored his last shot as a high school player. I called the timer and told the catcher that I would just throw the balls fast. I didn’t tell him why. As I stood on the mound, I gave my friend a meaningful nod that only baseball players would understand. On the third court, my friend hit a MONSTER homerun. As he gathered the bags, I threw my turpentine at him with a smile and shouted, “No problem!!” He pointed to me, gesturing thanks as he stepped on the plate of home rice. We won 7-1 that day, and eventually the regional championship. My friend never played organized baseball again. Months later, I learned my friend had also set the all-time RBI CONFERENCE record when he beat us. I want to think back to his last memory of his time as a player who left my friend with lifelong pride as the best player in his school. Last I heard, another player at his alma mater broke my friend’s record in 2019… 24 YEARS later. For almost a quarter of a century, my friends’ names were found at the top of long lists of players. Sure, it was a small thing in the grand scheme of the world, but it was something special to him. He still calls me every Spring during baseball season, calling me “Aido”, a pun on my nickname as a player, “First Aid”. ) and the name of the revered Greek god. , humble and grateful (Aidos). I call him “Mile”. A play on his name, and because that’s how far homerun has come…and as in, “give him a hit, and he got a MILE” 🙂 you succeed.
