A Good Day to Play Two
I left Shea Stadium between games of an August 1998 doubleheader but I had a reason. After a week of cryptic, distant phone calls from LA she was coming home. I tucked in my new shirt and straightened my tie as I arrived at LaGuardia Airport.
I knew what was coming when she didn’t make eye contact. As we drove past the 1964 World’s Fair she said it was best for her if we ended things. I felt dumb for dressing up to see her and dumber for leaving a perfectly good ballgame just to get my heart broken.
