Its game day as Andy Kirk watches his brother play baseball. He always watches from a high limb in a tall tree. He cut ten slots in the branch five for the home and five for the away. In those slots Andy puts in coins to keep score by putting nickels for the home team and pennies for the visitors. Then in the 9th inning his brother is up to bat. He hits a HOME RUN!!!! Andy puts up two up fingers and makes a "v" for victory. A woman screams and Andy wishes he had wings.
