Waiting For Phone To Ring

There's still time. Based on the guys who are being named late to the All-Star teams, I think I have a shot. Don't laugh, here's my case:

1.) I once got an RBI off Luis Tiant (see photo). At the 1992 Red Sox fantasy camp in Winter Haven, I hit a scorching ground ball to deep short. I was thrown out at first, but a run scored.

2.) Twenty years of extremely competitive softball. I'm talking an OPS of like 2.000.

3.) I'm old enough to have seen Ted Williams play—a perennial All-Star.

4.) Kansas City's Aaron Crow is an All-Star.

So, I'll be by the phone through today hoping for a call from Ron Washington. Wish me luck!
