Catch: The Base Hit (John Webb III)
I spent the day at Aviation Field in Forest Park watching the St. Louis Adult Men’s baseball league. During the games, I had the chance to talk with some of the players, including John W. Webb III whose out this year because of a bum knee. At sixty eight, he was itching to get back on the field because he loves — LOVES — the game.
I asked him about his favorite childhood memory of baseball, and what he thinks he learned from that moment.
