I wrote the first half of this tune, while I was watching my son Greg's Boy Scout troop play a softball game in the spring of 1991. The second half of the tune was written by my son Mathew a few months earlier in February, 1991 when he was almost three years old. I typed in a chord progression and let him scribble an eighth note melody over it using Vox. I later figured out that these two melodies complemented one another,that they broke into four parts like the four base path runs of a home run, and that they felt like a brisk run around the bases.
