This is where it all started. Would’ve been 1974, Peck Park, Opening Day, Diamond 2, T-Ball Pirates. I batted lead-off. We played the Dodgers and lost, which ended up being a losing year. I think we came in last place. We redeemed ourselves in ’75, winning the championship. What’d we do next? We went to Disneyland. It was the month Space Mountain opened.
Other than a renumbering of the diamonds (they’ve swapped 2 with 3), nothing much has changed. Except our moms screamed louder than the women do today.
