Listening to Dad
Jed wanted to play baseball in the
backyard. He told his dad about his plan and dad said,
"Yes, but be very careful."
Jed gathered his friends in the backyard.
They chose sides and began to play. Jed's friend Emily
batted first and hit a double. She raced to second base.
Lee struck out. The next batter hit a pop fly.
"Two outs!" Jed yelled.
"Come on Joey, get Emily home!"
shouted Jed's teammates.
Joey swung at two balls and hit the
third. The ball flew high into the air. Emily raced
around third base and headed for home. But instead of a
cheer, all that was heard was a loud crash! The ball crashed
through the garage window.
Jed's dad came running out of the house
shouting, "I told you to be careful!"
Jed and his friends gathered up their
belongings and headed to the park about a block away.
