When I was young playing little league we would eat big little chew bubble gum thinking we were chewing tobacco like the major leagues. We all wanted to be like the 86 mets I wanted to hit the ball like daryll strawberry.
My best friend Steven acted like he was Wade Boggs. We would go to the baseball field behind his house and play out the championship game at the field just him and I. I would always be someone on the mets and he would always be someone on the Red Soxs. This is one of my oldest and fondest baseball memories as a child.
