Sunlight’s hitting the clouds just right.
Grab your dusty cap, the same one you’ve been wearing for years, and step onto the diamond. It’s a feeling of anticipation as you glance around. You bring your old glove up to your face and breath in the familiar smell of leather. You can almost feel hitting the sweet spot on the bat. You can almost see your coach enthusiastically motioning for you to round the base and head for third. You can almost hear the victorious sound of the ump calling, “Safe!” as you slide into home plate.
The grass is freshly cut, the dirt is cleanly raked, and the ball bags are neatly lined up. It’s time to throw some balls around and get ready for another season of the sport you love.
Welcome back, Danaye. You’re home.
