From Rockybado 2: A Run in the Game
Brody Ingram slept in late the next morning. It was already noon, and he did not want to wake up. Brody had such a fun night with his best friend, Andrew McCalsky, and he was really sore from the run. When he was still in bed, he somehow heard his mom come into the bedroom. Brody was sleeping on his side, and it appeared obvious that he had missed his alarm; it went off thirty minutes ago. When she came in, he quickly pulled his covers over him and decided that it would be good to sleep in for at least another hour.
“Hey, Brody, you should get ready to leave for practice in a few minutes,” she said to him.
“I don’t wanna get up,” Brody answered feebly.
“You have a commitment, you know.”
“Ugh. Do I have to get up?”
“If you would like to stay on the baseball team, you should probably get up and get ready to go.”
That was, however, not enough coaxing for Brody to get up and get ready for baseball practice. His mom was right; Brody did have a commitment to the baseball team. And if he missed a few practices, he could possibly get eliminated from the team and have Bryan Brackley take his place.
The thought of Bryan got Brody moving.
“Do we have any more Chinese food in the fridge?” Brody asked once he got out of bed.
“Yes, we do,” his mom replied.
Practice started at 1:30, and it was 12:50. Brody tried to eat as quickly as he could, as the expedition over to the practice field is about fifteen minutes away. And he also needed to get ready for today’s practice. And that could take another few minutes at least.
Brody arrived at the baseball field at 1:49.
“Brody, you know you’re late. Where were you?” Coach Withrow asked.
“I overslept,” Brody answered.
However, Brody was not the only one late. Andrew was also late because he overslept as well. And Brody and Andrew had a great night last night. However, they were going to have to face the obvious consequences today: being overly exhausted from last night, and the fact that they might have to pay a penalty for being late to practice.
However, that was probably not going to happen. Coach Withrow has always known some of the boys’ strengths and weaknesses. One strength: Brody and Andrew are both outstanding players. One weakness: Brody and Andrew are not morning people.
