Can a player who was traded to another team, or pushed down to A ball, come back and play for their previous team without holding a grudge?
Can they just forget about a time when they were substituted. Or told they weren't good enough? Just forget about their whole schedule, the plays, signs, practice times and locations? Fill them with another one? Just forget about a time when they just plain weren't wanted?
Would they be able to remember all the old signs, or will new ones have to be put in place? What about misinterpretations? Ball clubs are infamous for their signs, but it doesn't mean a thing if the players don't remember what they mean. A sign to stay could be catastrophic if misinterpreted for a steal.
So, are grudges still held when they're called up? Or is everything forgotten in an attempt to be the best ball player the team has ever seen?
Well, it's game-time...time to find out. Play Ball.
And-- if everything's right-- a true ball club, a true friend, will be there no matter what.
