Last friday during lunchtime marks a turning point in history, Tommy McDonald was projected to go late in the 2nd round of the amateur kickball Association draft when Jimmy (The Leg) Wallace captain of the lunchtime team “The Bombers” decided to take a chance and pick Tommy first. The rest of the 3rd grade class was left in utter shock and frankly perplexed regarding The Leg’s decision. Playground monitor Mary Beth Williamson says “I have never seen anything like it before in my life, Tommy is always picked last for everything” when news leaked to the rest of the grades, Tommy quickly became a playground celebrity, now being approached by companies like Wheaties, Gatorade, and Spalding (the official ball supplier of the AKA) for lucrative endorsement contracts. Jealousy has now kicked in amongst the other kids and there is a rumored lockout taking place within the 3rd grade class until normal picking order is restored. In his debut match against the 4th grade girls team “The Sassy Sluggers” Tommy showed his stuff and came out with 3 homers and 4 RBI’s, his doubles stats were less impressive with zero (second base is WAY to far away). Even with his great first game performance there is still mixed feelings and only time will tell if there will be full season or if the lockout will will start before playoff season.
