Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for April 06, 2014
Coach: LET'S GO, GANG! LOOK ALIVE! Nate: Hello? Chad: Nate? It's Chad. Nate: What's up, Chad? Chad: You're playing too deep. Move in fifty feet. Nate: FIFTY FEET? Chad: And shift way over toward the foul line. Chad: There! Right there! Nate: HERE? I'm practically standing on FIRST BASE! Chad: Trust me. This batter has a sprained wrist, so he can't generate any power. Plus, he forgot his favorite bat, so he's using one that's too heavy for him. He can't pull the ball. Nate: Yeah, but... Chad: Heads up! He's about to swing! Chad: Never underestimate the importance of good scouting. Nate: You rock, Chad!
