The Knock (A Father Swells with Pride)
Wilmette, IL, 2011
With his Walker Bros squad trailing by a run, The Middle Kid stepped to the plate in a playoff game. He has struggled at the plate all season and quickly fell behind in the count on this at bat. Despite the long odds, he connected solidy, drove in a run and raced smartly to first. His team would lose this game, but for this shining moment, we all cheered at the sweet sound of ball and bat meeting.
