In 1983 my high school baseball team played their "national" team. I was the starting pitcher. Baseball was pretty new to them at the time. They were such a wonderful bunch of young men! I was not on my game that day... I beaned their cleanup hitter in the second inning (not intentionally), I tipped my hat to him and promptly beaned the next guy. Now I'm truly screwed? Nope. I asked to be pulled in the third inning... I was a danger to everyone except the catcher and umpire.

My team beat the snot out of them and the Aussies loved it. They learned a lot from it and they thanked us. I apologized to the two enormous young men I beaned. They were actually proud of their welts.

I was given an Australian pin that I gave to my father. It's one of the things he loves so very much.

I learned a lot about my beloved Australian brethren that day. They will forever be in my heart.

This one is for the Diggers! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BZ6aqgvdFI
