Career Highlight

 
My Career highlight, I hesitate to admit, took place when I was 12-years-old, in my last year of little league.  I played for the Valley de Oro Rams.  If I remember correctly, I think we were sponsored by Quality Dairy.  I think our color was purple.  I remember we went undefeated for the season, a perfect 18-and-0.  Anyway, the Rams had a couple really good pitchers, and one -- I think his name was Mike Rodgers -- was pitching a no-hitter, and in the bottom of the last inning, with two out, some kid hit a dinky little fly ball just over the shortstop's head.  Well, I came racing in from center field, dove, snared the ball in the webbing of my glove, then rolled head over heals.  When I came to my feet I had to look to see if the ball was still in my glove.  It was. The game was over and the whole team, led by Mike Rodgers carried me off the field.  After the game I remember Mike's dad treated me to a snow cone
