And from there they walked to Applebee’s, and the disciples said, “We only have enough to order one 2 for $20 meal.” And Jesus said, “Don’t worry about it.” And the disciples ate and were satisfied. And when the restaurant manager saw what Jesus had done, he treated all of them to free Blue Ribbon Brownies.
Jesus left there and crossed the four-lane expressway to a baseball park, where a very small boy stood at the plate awaiting a pitch. The boy, seeing Jesus, cried out, “Lord, help me!” The disciples, knowing the boy had only been on base twice that year–both times being walks–begged Jesus not to get involved. “Are you still so dull?” Jesus asked them. He walked up to the boy and said, “You have great faith! Your request is granted.” And he told the boy that, to begin with, his bat was too big, and that he needed to choke up and shorten his swing. The tiny boy did this, and hit a sharp grounder through the second baseman’s legs, driving in a run to tie the game. The people were amazed and asked, “Who is this man?” Jesus left the ballpark, and large crowds followed him. Word spread about him quickly throughout the metropolitan area.
