Taking one for the team

Wed, May 19, 2021 One-minute read

Scene: Nick's intermediate league baseball game.

Bottom of the last inning. Other team at bat. 2 outs. 2 on base. Winning hitter at bat. Fly to right field. Nick makes a beautiful diving catch and comes up with the ball, ending the game for his team to win…

…then runs off the field holding his arm.

One rushed trip to the office for x-rays later, and it's confirmed: he broke the same wrist that he broke last year when he fell off his skateboard.

I'll hand it to the kid: he plays hard. If you're going to get hurt, you may as well do it heroically.
