My elementary school days consisted of “sports toys” like a whiffle ball and bat, dozens of Nerf footballs and size 4 soccer balls (size 3 didn’t exist in the 70’s). A silver Schwinn Sting Ray, blue roller derby urethane skates, a Black Night skateboard with clay wheels… all ventured over sheets of plywood propped up with red bricks… with varying degrees of success. Nothing a plastic Dodger “batting helmet” can’t protect. Distinct memories of a Kareem Abdul Jabbar t-shirt, guarded by a Celtic- the sky hook. White tube socks with tow or three horizontal stripes pulled up just under the knee cap. A red and white t-ball jersey made from baseball “sleeves” with iron-on numbers and a last name. Anderson, Number 4 The team picture for the inaugural baseball season wearing cut-off Levi’s in summer before first grade, games played on patchy brown grass at a local elementary school. Every coach wore long pants with a belt, shirts tucked in. The obligatory mustache. A box in the garage filled with jump ropes, frisbees, baseball gloves and tennis balls. Jumping cinder-block fences to retrieve home-runs or foul balls.
