Iíll Never Forget one tourney against a TPS Team. The TPS Tripple Wall had just come out. So 92? There was a BadAss on their team named Arron somethig? He had just won a Contest at the SF Giants Park,my Hometown for a Home Run Contest.
I step up to the Plate with my TPS Tripple,which I was killing it with.
Arron runs out of the DugOut up to the Home Plate Ump. That Bat is not Legal for this Tourney Blue. Blue agrees and Bans my Bat.
I look at him and said are you serious? I could not believe that a Man of his stature was going after me for this?
Anyway,his first at Bat I was ready for him. I knew he was pull hitter. They were swinging a TPS Air Bat? Not even on the Market yet. I forget the Model,but Air was part of it.
I was playin 3rd at the Bag,Two steps Off. Man on First and he steps up. He unleashes a Shot Down the Line,I Snatch it so Fast the Guy at first was going all out to second Not even looking at me. I caught the line drive and was in motion to throw to First Base for a Double. However,he hit sooo Hard with Spin that it Froze my Hand and I could not Feel. The Ball Spun out of my Hand as I was trying to throw to First like 50feet in the Dirt to my right all the way to the DugOut. I ran and picked it up as he trotted into second and the other guy was at third.
Man oh Man,Never have I Ever had a Ball hit that Hard at me. When I picked the Ball up All 3 of my Fingers and Palm were Numb. I had a Rawlings Gold Trapize Glove,Top of the Line. Everything I did was Perfect,it was just to much Power.
Last,the Blue should have called him Out! I caught the Rocket Clean! I remember he never Left the Box cause I snatched it! But my motion to go for the Deuce left Me out to Dry. It All happened so Fast.
