Number 1 comes up to the plate, first professional game, first professional at bat and nails it -- not just over the little fence, but over the big fence and out into the street. That thing would have been gone out of any ballpark, major league or otherwise. Everyone's just standing there, not saying anything watching this kid trot around the bases.
Finally the old guy in front of me, turns around and says "Who was that?"
"Chris Parmelee, " I said, with a bit of awe in voice. "The Goodbye Kid."
And then I did my best impression of a Blur song.
He walked on his next two at bats, and then struck out for his fourth at bat.
So -- if a visit to the good Doctor Bromberg didn't cure me, the single shot over the left field fence by Nurse Parmelee certainly did.
Man...that was one of the prettiest things I ever have seen. I think at 1.5 mil, he may be a bargain.
