"Heads up, it's a bunt! He's putting it down!" Teri screamed, cupping her hands around her mouth. The infielders were already reading the stance of the batter and moving forward in anticipation.
Sure enough, the batter skilfully laid a soft bunt down the third base line and took off for first, and with bases loaded, everyone was running.
Teri jumped to her feet. "Home, force at home!" she yelled as if she could be heard over the roar of the crowd, her eyes glued to the third baseman.
He charged the ball, snagging it on the run and deftly flipping it to the catcher for the out at home.
"Turn two, turn two!"
The catcher then heaved the ball to first, just past the head of the batter, and Teri watched, heart in her throat, for the call from the umpire.
Before he'd even finished his, "Out!" signalling the successful double play, she was in the air with a whoop, looking automatically to the tall, rangy third baseman, who was pointing straight at her with a crooked grin. She blew him a kiss, and the handsome player winked back before running to join his teammates celebrating their victory with a huge dogpile on the pitcher mound. It was early in the season yet, but a return trip to the College World Series in Omaha was looking more and more likely. Fingers crossed.
Heart pounding with adrenaline, and still feeling giddy from being on the receiving end of that beautiful smile, Teri turned a bit sheepishly to the tall, equally handsome man standing and clapping next to her on the bleachers. He was looking down at her with a familiar combination of amusement and embarrassment. As soon as their eyes met, she threw her arms around his middle in an apologetic hug.
"Do I know you?" he mocked.
Teri smiled against his shirt. "Know me and love me."
"You love him more." He pouted as he patted her on the head.
