That would have been a homer
Some of my friends like baseball, while others can’t stand the sport. For them, it’s too boring. There isn’t enough going on to entertain them. Well, there was enough action Monday night at Benton Academy for anyone to be interested in.
In a game that saw 16 runs scored, there was plenty of stuff going on. However, there is a way there could have been even more action. Play this game a year ago and we’d be talking about the three or four home runs that went into the woods.
It was the most common phrase I overheard, “a year ago, that’d be a homer.”
For the most part, these people are right. Now, every time a ball goes into the outfield and it’s caught, the reason won’t be because of the new bats every time. Monday night, though, that’s what you saw. Several balls, including the final one of the game, looked to be headed over the fence, but just seemed to fall out.
