All the way through junior high school, my value in choose-up games of punchball, stickball, softball, and similar games lay in my ability to get hits and to do so reliably. On the fielding side, I was almost always the right-fielder or the catcher, and for good reason—my fielding sucked.

Years later, when I signed up with the Plenum softball team as part of New York City's Publisher's Softball League, I simply made the decision from the outset that I would play an infield position, and ended up at third base.

I did a pretty good job at that position. My fielding was spot on and it helped that my arm allowed me to throw accurately to first base from over there on the third base line.

And nobody was ever the wiser.
