HOW 8 BECAME MY NUMBER
Technically inspired by @dad3 Thanks!
- •I was 8 years oldObviously my age seemed to confirm my destiny 😉
- •I had begun playing baseball on an all boys team at the beginning of the summer
- •A League of Their Own just came out in theaters
- •The best player in the league was Dottie Hinson
- •The number on her uniform was 8
- •I wanted to be the best player in our (little) league
- •8 has been my number in every sport I've played since thenAnd I've played on a ton of sports team since I was 8.
- •Side note: it was difficult for me to not write out a number under ten for the purposes of this list
