I found this picture at my parents' house and immediately recognized the uniformed player on the left. I was curious why my dad never mentioned his college baseball career. "Daddy," I said. "I didn't know you played baseball while you were at Tuskegee." "I didn't," he replied. "That's not me." "Oh." I still like the picture.

I found this picture at my parents’ house and immediately recognized the uniformed player on the left. The casual pose, the charismatic acknowledgment of the camera– that was definitely my dad. But I was curious why he never mentioned his college baseball career. “Daddy,” I said, “I didn’t know you played baseball while you were at Tuskegee.”
“I didn’t,” he replied. “That’s not me.”
“Oh.”
I still like the picture.
