At Week’s End

Mid-July 1954 was hot as blue blazes, but not too hot for a knot of kids to covey up at Dick Davis’ house most afternoons and traipse off to Humboldt’s Walter Johnson Field for a game of Indian ball.

A chain securing an iron gate on the west end had enough slack for us to squeeze through.

The old diamond, with wood bleachers and lights perched on steel towers, was a dust pit; rain was scarce that month. Running across the field raised brownish clouds.
