For the record
Bill Richardson's admission that he previously lied about once being drafted by a Major League Baseball team has made me decide to come clean about my own athletic record. Like the New Mexico governor, I also never was drafted by a professional baseball team. I must also go further and acknowledge that I never played on a college team, nor did I play any organized sports in high school. Or junior high.
I did, however, play three years of Little League baseball. I stopped playing when I received a letter from the commissioner of Major League Baseball and a committee of Hall of Fame members pleading that I no longer pick up a bat and glove, lest I continue to desecrate the national pastime. Fearing that their missive would leave me undeterred, they also filed a restraining order that prevented me from stepping within 500 feet of any baseball diamond.
There. Now I feel better.
