Had so much promise. For you, the bottle was like a curveball to Serrano.

We played around the same time. Was it off of Ellis?

Not a baseball fan. When I was younger I played and I remember being bored out of my mind every game.

Hit the fricking fence yearly when I was young. Then at 45 I was on a older baseball team - machine pitch 75 miles per hour. Only got a few bats but on one of them hit one to center field at West Monroe HS baseball field (i think). As it was flying "away" I said "finally". It then hit the very top of the fence and bounced back in. My last chance

Hit around 20 my whole life including a whopping 3 in college. Most proud of hitting a bomb at the old Box in a wood bat tourney in high school.

Damnit that sucks.

I've always had "Warning track power" on my best day. Those moments go in slow motion, but it never works out.

Kind of like my height. Couldn't quite get to 6 feet.

I hit quite a few back in the day. Sorry, I don't have any old game film or stat sheets.

I didn't hit my first til I was 16, but after that I hit quite a few in summer league and high school.

Best game ever I laid down a squeeze my first AB, sac fly my second, and then two three run homers my next two AB's.

Final stat line: 2-2 2 HR 8RBI

Hit 8 over in my little league days. I grew faster than a lot of kids.

Eta: The only reason I know is that I kept each ball if it was retrieved. 6 were retrieved, and I always remembered that I never got 2 back.

I've hit a few, my last game ever in baseball I was 3 for 3 with a walk 2 doubles and a grand slam. Had 7 RBIs. Probably the best baseball game I ever had statistically. I pitched pretty as well.

2 in my last year of playing (12 yr old). One was a 2 out game tying grand slam where we won in extras. The pinnacle of my baseball career. Football paid for my college so I ain't too mad that I gave up baseball.

I hit one in Legion. Playing at Ecole I hit it over a short chicken wire fence that ran in right center from the football field. Ump called it a ground rule double and our shortstop went crazy. When we were going back on the field our shortstop kept at it and the ump told him one more word and you are out the game. He said one more word and got ejected.
Sad part was we only had nine guys and had to forfeit.
When we were shaking hands the center fielder said it was well over the fence
