part 325.4 of a novel: baseball group of men

There is a baseball group of men and they have lots of big guys and some little guys and some guys you forget about until one of them says, “Hey one time in Little League they threw me the ball and I ran home with it and when I got home the phone was ringing so I picked up and it was the coach and he said, ‘Can you bring back the ball?’ So I did and then I went up to bat and hit the ball and ran around the bases and no one tagged me and that’s when I knew I would have a long future in this game and I stopped learning to read and my teacher didn’t care because I showed a lot of athletic promise and everyone knew that one day I would become something of a moderate professional on a baseball group of men.”
