    Gracie Revels will never forget her first home run – she was 12.

    She comes to bat and her mom’s in the restroom.

    Gracie swings, heads for first, and sees the first base umpire spinning his finger around and around and around, signaling a homer.

She’s rounding second when her mother walks out of the bathroom and hears. “Gracie just hit a home run!”

    Gracie remembers her momma screaming and jumping all around.
