I would have been about 12 years old when I received this patch. It was for Little League. My interest in baseball was waning at this point, unlike my son Gabriel who went to Univ. of Richmond on a baseball scholarship.
However, when I was 10 years old, I played 2nd base on the 'Reds', which was funny because when the shirts were passed out, the only ones left were green ones. I hit a home run in the championship game. It was a sizzling grounder down the 3rd base line..an inside-the-parker. I truly looked like a 'Peanuts' character, as my glove was as big as my body.
