Hahahahaha...being an avid baseball lover I totally enjoyed this piece. The humor and perfect ending was extremely entertaining and so well told.

God bless~
I loved the double meaning in the game. The descriptions of the pitches were so realistic.
LOVE baseball - and this entry. Just excellent. Great descriptions, internalization, EVERYTHING. This one delighted me.
The MC's internal dialogue while
in the midst of an activity requiring a whole lot of concentration was hilarious. The downward progression of his contemplation's in those few short moments was a good lesson for the reader to guard our thoughts.
Even as someone who knows nothing at all about baseball and most of its terminology, I enjoyed your story with the thoughts going through the MC's head as he played the game. It's very well written and you deserve your 'Highly commended'.
Your inner dialog running throughout the game was genius. I especially appreciated the parallels to his marriage. Excellent writing. Congrats on your level award and Editor's Choice award!
