“There were no foul lines, just base paths word by year after year of cubs running the bases. So there were a lot of arguments about foul balls. There was a rule against sliding into second base, because second base was a rock. And any ball that was hit into the duck pond in left field was a ground-rule double and an automatic time-out while they fished out.
But arguments, rocks, and duck ponds didn’t worry Brother, Sister, and their friends. They chose up sides and started a game.”
