Smashing Success

It could be a Jane Austen novel, if the prime mover of chick lit wrote today about fathers and sons and baseball (and basically was a completely different author writing completely differently than she did). Actually, that's just a twisted way of talking up the story that could be titled "Pride and Vexation."

Hudsonville (Mich.) Junior Shane Trevino hit the first home run of his high school baseball career, a game winner, smack through the window of the car his father parked outside the stadium. Was papa Tony ecstatic? Obviously. Was he taken aback to realize that he had to go in to his boss and explain how the (estimated) 67,000 to one occurrence will cost his company some change? A bit, but only before he went back to celebrating his son's success.
