. That's especially impressive since you don't seem to know anything about baseball. .
Oh, you're killing me! (I'm just goofing here...)
Been a HUGE baseball fan my whole life. Spent over a decade in sports radio hosting talk shows -- primarily about baseball and football.
Of course... now that I think about it... I did regularly get people telling me I had no idea what I was talking about... so, carry on.
(I pictured the card as a rare insert... akin to a signed Ken Griffey, Jr. rookie card... one that everyone knows is going to go through the roof.)
Seriously, though. Thanks for the comments.
My 2 big decisions in writing this were 1. flashback? 2. how to handle the names
I knew I'd get comments no matter which direction I took it.
I'm glad I handled the flashbacks the way I did. It's exactly how you'd see it on screen... with no indication we're in different times.
I originally didn't change the names on the last page... and I didn't call out the transition between the times. I wish I would have kept it that way. But, I could just hear someone saying "but, they're different actors, so we need to know that for production purposes." to which, I'd reply "I'll change it for the shooting script."
I went back and forth... finally decided to change them. I'll be changing it back.
