A creative nonfiction story about one of my biggest childhood disappointments.
Read The Worst Choke Job in Baseball History.
“Euphoria turned to anxiety. Even local kid TV celebrities like Sally Starr, Chief Halftown, and Gene London were concerned by the Phillies’ late-season swoon. And soon, there was no more talk about buying world series tickets. Instead, random people in stores and supermarkets said how the Phillies sucked and that it was stupid to believe in them.”–Mark Tulin
I remember them! Still popular in Philly when I was young.
