Toeing the Slab

First PItch

It's a great honor to be asked to throw out the first pitch of a baseball game. My organization sponsored an event at the ballpark tonight and they were gracious enough to allow me to trot out onto the grass to hurl the initial offering.
I didn't warm up or practice. In fact, I spent most of my time on the field snapping photos. As I was introduced, I was met with a smattering of polite applause from the assembled fans.
That's all you really can hope for. Oh, and not to bounce the pitch in there.
Thankfully, I did not. The toss crossed the plate on the fly, albeit a little high. Then, I got out of there with the ball and a pleasant memory.
