Take Me Out to the Ball Game

I hated playing baseball in gym class. I could never really hit the ball and when I did, it didn't go very far. In high school, we spent a week playing baseball and I was on a team that I didn't really like (last chosen and all that). It was my turn to bat and before I even got the ball pitched to me, my teammates (some of the douchebaggiest kids in high school) began making fun of me. I was standing on base like an idiot, I'm going to get an out, blah-blah-blah. They just kept harrassing me and I had enough of it so after the second strike I walked over to where they were standing behind the backstop and slammed the bat into it, narrowly missing their fingers. I then finally hit the ball and got on second base before someone got the third out and ruined our chance of scoring.
