Like father, like son

“Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical…”

Yogi Berra

Allan, my father was a keen baseballer. Dad played in the third team for the Goodwood Indians. His brother Bruce was a bit of a local star. He was a catcher in the first team. In the 1950s and 60s, baseball was a pretty big spectator sport in Adelaide. Baseball was played at night long before football or cricket. Semi professional games were played each Wednesday night under lights at Norwood Oval. Bruce hit the first home run under the new lights at Norwood. Dad taught me a lot about life through baseball. He showed me that success involves participation, volunteering to help others and the spirit that you bring. Athletic skill, talent and winning don’t really define you. My dad was my Little League coach and we both loved that time in our lives. #prettycuteelevenyearold #letsmakelemonade
