Don’t Feed the Outfielders



I am walking to my son’s field for his Saturday baseball game, fifth of the season. I spot a little boy on the outside of the fence dropping sunflower seeds into a very small hand pushed and squeezed through the galvanized metal fence.  The little hand, full of sunflower seeds, closes around the seeds and tries to get back through the fence opening.  One of his coaches is waving him in from the outfield, as the rest of his team runs into the dugout.  They are up to bat.  Poor little guy.  He’s stuck in the fence.  And all for a handful of sunflower seeds.  Eventually, the coach comes out to see what the hold up is.  The coach lets a smile slip out as he gets closer  and sees the situation. Then, he rescues the boy.
