Home or Away

[In an earlier stage of my life I lived in rural Minnesota.]

In Minnesota the independent baseball teams were quite active when I lived in Barrett, MN. The teams played every Sunday afternoon during June and July.

The Barrett Pioneers were the pride of the Resorters League. The Barrett players took the game seriously. Most of the town was at the game, including the girl friends and wives of the players.

Denny was one of the starting nine for the Pioneers. The Pioneers wore yellow uniforms for home games and maroon uniforms for away games.

One Sunday for a home game Denny showed up wearing his maroon uniform, Naturally, everybody thought that Denny had gotten confused about the location of the game. Nope! The truth was that Denny and his wife, Marg, had had a fight the night before, and Marg had hidden his home jersey.
