Part 1, Chapter 8

Prison Guy Plays Ball

  • After school, Moose heads to the field to play ball. Other kids start swarming him with questions about Alcatraz, so he tells a few tall tales about eating snacks with convicts.
  • He feels really free out in the field. He doesn't have to worry about his family, or about his new home.
  • He doesn't do a great job of hitting the ball, but makes it to first base. The game gets better from there, though, and he scores a pretty impressive double play.
  • This makes him an instant hit with the other guys. With this, Moose starts thinking that life here might not be so bad after all.
