First Frame: Charlie Brown is in the batter’s box. He has a helmet on, has the bat in the proper position and is waiting for the pitch.
Second Frame: Here comes the pitch. Everything seems ready – his elbow is up, his knees are bent and his eye is on the ball. He doesn’t flinch.
Third Frame: Charlie Brown is screaming, that bat is on the ground and the caption reads “AAARRRGH! It was right over the middle, why didn’t I swing??!!!”
In typical Peanuts fashion, Charlie Brown represents so many of us who are as prepared as we can be but refuse to try to hit the ball. Being prepared is only part of the game – eventually if you want to be successful, you have to swing. Come to Middlebury, Vermont and dig into the batter’s box. The next time it’s right over the plate, we can ensure you take a whack!
