You could, in fact, pick up a bat, put on a glove, and be a part of it all. From that first game on, Graig Nettles was my favorite player. I perfected his batting stance: right leg straight, bat held casually out in front of the chest; and his swing, a slight bend and uncoil, not too busy, nothing unorthodox, a quick swivel of the hips generating its torque; and drove my parents to distraction with obsessive, almost-Tourettic repetition.
Getting ready for school, on line at a movie theater, on the way to the fridge to get a bottle of ketchup in the middle of dinner, I would slip into a fugue state and assume the position unconsciously, waving an invisible bat over my left shoulder. My best friend through grade school, Chris Pack, had chosen Nettles as his hero, too. And … makes the play! We both have kids. But Nettles never made the Hall of Fame like we were so sure he would. His eligibility expired 10 years ago. I can still see it now. I remember the lying about it most clearly.
