        At a fundraising dinner for an American school that serves learning disabled children, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended. He told the audience a story about his son, Shay, who was physically and mentally handicapped (残疾的) when he came into the world. One day, Shay and his father walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were playing baseball. Shay asked, “Do you think they’ll let me play?” Shay’s father knew that most of the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team, but the father also understood that if his son were allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging and some confidence to be accepted by others in spite of his handicaps.
  Shay’s father approached one of the boys on the field and asked if Shay could play, not expecting much. The boy looked around for guidance and said, “We’re losing by six runs(跑垒得分) and the game is in the eighth inning(局). I guess he can be on our team in the ninth inning.”
  Shay struggled over to the team’s bench, putting on a team shirt with a broad smile.His father had a small tear in his eye and warmth in his heart.In the bottomof the eighth inning,Shay’s teamscored a few runs but was still behind by three.In the top of the ninth inning,Shay put on a glove and played in right field(右外野).
  Even though no hits came his way, Shay was obviously ecstatic(狂喜的), grinning fromear to ear as his father waved to him from the stands. In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay’s team scored again. Now the potential winning run was on base(在垒上) and Shay was scheduled to be next at bat(上场击球).
  At this moment, do they let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the game? Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that a hit was all but impossible because Shay didn’t even know how to hold the bat properly. However, as Shay stepped up to the plate(本垒板), the pitcher(投手), recognizing the other team putting winning aside for this moment in Shay’s life, moved in a few steps to throw the ball softly so that Shay could at least be able to make contact.
  As the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball(地滚球) right back to the pitcher. Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game. But the pitcher threw the ball out of reach of all teammates. Everyone from the stands and both teams started yelling, “Shay, run! Run to home(本垒)!”Never in his life had Shay ever run that far but he ran to home and was cheered as the hero who won the game for his team.
  That day, said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face, the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and humanity into this world.Shay didn’t make it to another summer and died that winter, having never forgotten being the hero and making his father so happy that day!
