Favourite Toy Friday
I loved baseball when I was a kid. Listened to all the Dodger games on the radio with Vin Scully announcing. Played at school and in an after school girls' softball league. And spent most evenings during spring and summer in the back yard - throwing up the ball and batting it. One night my dad came home from work with the above! A pitch back! I could throw and the ball would come back- revolutionary! It was fantastic and one of the best things was it felt like an endorsement from my dad - "OK, you're not the daughter who sews, you play baseball and that's just fine!"
