I should add a bit about WHY this was such a great moment for me.
1. My two boys were in the stands (up the first base line - no seating was made available down the third base line - that's why it looks so empty!).
2. This was a 25+ league and I made the All-Star game at the age of 43.
3. I had missed most of the entire 2011 season because I had surgery to repair my triceps tendon which I had torn off the bone lifting.
4. They had the gun working on the board and the pitch I hit (off of a former Atlanta farmhand) clocked at 93.
5. We won the game 1-0.

Note two important things: Wood bat. No batting gloves. That's how you're supposed to play it.
