Dad played with me a great deal, as dads should do, and our chief sport was baseball. He bought me a hardball when I was three years old, and he used to sit in a rocker on the front porch while I sat on the grass in the yard, and we’d play catch by the hour.
I am an only child, and I guess was spoiled by my parents.
I guess I set a world record for errors. I had a pretty good arm, see, but I didn’t have much control.
