Two Strikes On Johnny


Johnny Doane’s brother Michael was blind.  Yet he loved to go with Johnny to the games the Cardinals played.  Johnny was the Cardinals’ center fielder, and Michael thought he was just about the best ball player ever.  Johnny knew he was not, that he was poor hitter, but he couldn’t bear to disappoint Michael.  So he got in the habit of telling Michael small white lies.  All this made Michael very happy, but was this the right thing for Johnny to do?
