Do you remember anything that happened on that day? That specific day? I don't. Austin does!
Russ was looking for our remote for our other TV because the on/off button broke yesterday. While he was digging under and around things, he found a ticket stub for a Braves Game: Braves vs. Padres, August 14, 2003.
Austin said, "I remember that game! Jake Peavey pitched for the Padres, John Smoltz for the Braves. Sheffield hit a homer. "
I asked Russ if there was a way to check, so we got online and looked up the box score. Yep, Peavey started that game for the Padres. Smoltz got the save for the Braves. Gary Sheffield hit a homer. Russ asked if Austin remembered anything else from that game. Austin said, "Chipper Jones hit a homer, too." Yep, he was right.
He's done this before with hurricane landfall dates/strengths, and with Atlanta area tornado warnings. And of course, he's always been great with baseball player statistics. But this is the first time he's ever picked out a specific ball game and gave us so much detail! And it was over 4 years ago!
(Of course, don't get me started on the fact that he still cannot identify nouns or verbs in sentences, or that long division w/single digit divisors has taken over 4 months for him to understand --- lol)
