The Most Famous #3

Jack: "Who is #3 on the Angels?"

DH: "Not sure we have a #3."

Me: "I don't think #3 is assigned to anyone this year. Hey Jack, do you know the name of the most famous player to ever wear #3?"

DH: "Yeah, #3 is a pretty special number because of the player who wore it once!"

Jack: "What team?"

Me: "Yankees."

Jack: "Was it from olden days? Did he hit lots of home runs?"

DH: "Yep. Lots of Home Runs!"

Jack: "That's easy... Babe Ruth! Give me another one!"

Me: "OK, who wore #42 for the Dodgers?"

Jack: "Too easy... Jackie Robinson. Got another?"

Me to DH: "Are you wiping away tears of joy from your eyes?"

DH: "No, tears of pride!"

You are raising that boy right!!!

Nothing warms my heart more than:

1. Baptisms
2. Young baseball fans

Most of the time in that order.
