The Bottom of the 5th

The BOTTOM OF THE 5TH, a short story by Edison McDaniels.

Have you seen the movie THE SANDLOT?

Well, that was pretty much my childhood. As a ten year old, it seemed the mysteries of life came alive through baseball. This is a story straight out of those glory days of playing baseball on the diamonds of Southern California, of the smell of cut grass in the outfield, of hitting impossible homers on and off the field. And of ghosts. This story is very much about the ghosts of childhood.
