Brad Alstadt - southpaw. The only kid to make the Little League Tryouts in Roanoke at 9 years of age because he was a 'southpaw'. Needless to say, the rest of us were a bit jealous. He lived a few houses from David Abby, whose mother was my first piano teacher and Cub Scout Den Mother. We played countless baseball games and had as many arguments in the Abby's backyard.
