yes Detective Anderson Thank you, Mrs Stanhope Stanhope Who could believe Terry would do such a thing Do you suppose there have been others Detective Anderson We may find that out in the course of our investigation 5 Since all City League tournament games were played at Estelle Barga Fieldthe best baseball field in the county, and the only one with lights for night gameshome team advantage was decided by a coin toss Terry Maitland called tails before the game, as he always didit was a superstition handed down from his own City League coach, back in the dayand tails it was I dont care where were playing, I just like to get my lasties, he always told his boys And tonight he needed them It was the bottom of the ninth, the Bears were up in this league semifinal by a single run The Golden Dragons were down to their last out, but they had the bases loaded A walk, a wild pitch, an error, or an infield single would tie it, a ball hit into the gap would win it The crowd was clapping, stamping the metal bleachers, and cheering as little Trevor Michaels stepped into the lefthand batters box His batting helmet was the smallest one they had, but it still shaded his eyes and he had to keep pushing it up He twitched his bat nervously back and forth Terry had considered pinch hitting for the boy, but at just an inch over five feet, he drew a lot of walks And while he was no home run hitter, he was sometimes able to put the bat on the ball Not often, but sometimes If Terry lifted him for a pinch hitter, the poor kid would have to live with the humiliation through the whole next year of middle school If, on the other hand, he managed a single, he would recall it over beers and backyard barbecues for the rest of his life Terry knew Hed been there himself, once upon a time, in the antique era before the game was played with aluminum bats The Bears pitchertheir closer, a real fireballerwound up and threw one right down the heart of the plate Trevor watched it go by with an expression of dismay The umpire called strike one The crowd groaned Gavin Frick, Terrys assistant coach, paced up and down in front of the boys on the bench, the scorebook rolled up in one hand how many times had Terry asked him not to do that , and his XXL Golden Dragons tee shirt straining over his belly, which was XXXL at least I hope letting Trevor bat for himself wasnt a mistake, Ter, he said Sweat was trickling down his cheeks He looks scared to death, and I dont blieve he could hit that kids speedball with a tennis racket Lets see what happens, Terry said Ive got a good feeling about this He didnt, not really The Bears pitcher wound up and released another burner, but this one landed in the dirt in front of home plate The crowd rose to its feet as Baibir Patel, the Dragons tying run at third, jinked a few steps down the line They settled back with a groan as the ball bounced into the catchers mitt The Bears catcher turned to third, and Terry could read his expression, even through the mask Justtry it, homeboy Baibir didnt The next pitch was wide, but Trevor flailed at it, anyway Strike him out, Fritz a leather lung shouted from high up in the bleachersalmost surely the fireballers father, from the way the kid snapped his head in that direction Strike him owwwwwt Trevor didnt offer at the next pitch, which was closetoo close to take, really, but the ump called it a ball, and it was the Bears fans turn to groan Someone suggested that the ump needed stronger glasses Another fan mentioned something about a seeing eye dog Two and two now, and Terry had a strong sense that the Dragons season hung on the next pitch Either they would play the Panthers for the City championship, and go on to compete in the Statesgames that were actually televisedor they would go home and meet just one time, at the barbecue in the Maitland backyard that traditionally marked the end of the season He turned to look at Marcy and the girls, sitting where they always did, in lawn chairs behind the home plate screen His daughters were flanking his wife like pretty bookends All three waved crossed fingers at him Terry gave them a wink and a smile and two thumbs up, although he still didnt feel right It wasnt just the game He hadnt felt right for some time now Not quite Marcys return smile faltered into a puzzled frown She was looking to her left, and jerked a thumb that way Terry turned and saw two city cops walking in lockstep down the third base line, past Barry Houlihan, who was coaching there Time, time the home plate umpire bellowed, stopping the Bears pitcher just as he went into his wind up Trevor Michaels stepped out of the batters box, and with an expression of relief, Terry thought The crowd had grown quiet, looking at the two cops One of them was reaching behind his back The other had his hand on the butt of his holstered service weapon Off the field the ump was shouting Off the field Troy Ramage and Tom Yates ignored him They walked into the Dragons dugouta makeshift affair containing a long bench, three baskets of equipment, and a bucket of dirty practice ballsand directly to where Terry was standing From the back of his belt, Ramage produced a pair of handcuffs The crowd saw them, and raised a murmur that was two parts confusion and one part excitement Ooooo Hey, you guys Gavin said, hustling up and almost tripping over Richie Gallants discarded first basemans mitt Weve got a game to finish here Yates pushed him back, shaking his head The crowd was dead silent now The Bears had abandoned their tense defensive postures and were just watching, their gloves dangling The catcher trotted out to his pitcher, and they stood together halfway between the mound and home plate Terry knew the one holding the cuffs a little he and his brother sometimes came to watch the Pop Warner games in the fall Troy What is this Whats the deal Ramage saw nothing on the mans face except what looked like honest bewilderment, but he had been a cop since the nineties, and knew that the really bad ones had that Who, me look down to a science And this guy was as bad as they came Remembering Andersons instructions and not minding a bit , he raised his voice so he could be heard by the entire crowd, which the next days paper would announce as 1,588 Terence Maitland, I am arresting you for the murder of Frank Peterson Another Ooooo from the bleachers, this one louder, the sound of a rising wind Terry frowned at Ramage He understood the words, they were simple English words forming a simple declarative sentence, he knew who Frankie Peterson was and what had happened to him, but the meaning of the words eluded him All he could say was What Are you kidding and that was when the sports photographer from the Flint City Call snapped his picture, the one that appeared on the front page the next day His mouth was open, his eyes were wide, his hair was sticking out around the edges of his Golden Dragons cap In that photo he looked both enfeebled and guilty What did you say Hold out your wrists, please Terry looked at Marcy and his daughters, still sitting in their chairs behind the chickenwire, staring at him with identical expressions of frozen surprise Horror would come later Baibir Patel left third base and started to walk toward the dugout, taking off his batting helmet to show the sweaty mat of his black hair, and Terry saw the kid was starting to cry Get back there Gavin shouted at him Games not over But Baibir only stood in foul territory, staring at Terry and bawling Terry stared back, positive almost positive he was dreaming all this, and then Tom Yates grabbed him and yanked his arms out with enough force to make Terry stumble forward Ramage snapped on the cuffs Real ones, not the plastic strips, big and heavy, gleaming in the late sun In that same rolling voice, he proclaimed You have the right to remain silent and refuse to answer questions, but if you choose to speak, anything you say can be held against you in a court of law You have the right to an attorney during questioning now or in the future Do you understand Troy Terry could hardly hear his own voice He felt as if the wind had been punched out of him What in Gods name is this Ramage took no notice Do you understand Marcy came to the chickenwire, hooked her fingers through it, and shook it Behind her, Sarah and Grace were crying Grace was on her knees beside Sarahs lawn chair her own had fallen over and lay in the dirt What are you doing Marcy shouted What in Gods name are you doing And why are you doing it here Do you understand What Terry understood was that he had been handcuffed and was now being read his rights in front of almost sixteen hundred staring people, his wife and two young daughters among them It was not a dream, and it was not simply an arrest It was, for reasons he could not comprehend, a public shaming Best to get it over as fast as possible, and get this thing straightened out Although, even in his shock and bewilderment, he understood that his life would not be going back to normal for a long time I understand, he said, and then Coach Frick, get back Gavin, who had been approaching the cops with his fists clenched and his fat face flushed a hectic red, lowered his arms and stepped back He looked through the chickenwire at Marcy, raised his enormous shoulders, spread his pudgy hands In the same rolling tones, like a town crier belting out the weeks big news in a New England town square, Troy Ramage continued Ralph Anderson could hear him from where he stood leaning against the unmarked unit He was doing a good job, was Troy It was ugly, and Ralph supposed he might be reprimanded for it, but he would not be reprimanded by Frankie Petersons parents No, not by them If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided to you before any questioning, if you desire Do you understand Yes, Terry said I understand something else, too He turned to the crowd I have no idea why Im being arrested Gavin Frick willfinish coaching the game And then, as an afterthought Baibir, get back to third, and remember to run in foul territory There was a smatter of applause, but only a smatter The leatherlung in the bleachers yelled again, Whatd you say he did And the crowd responding to the question, muttering the two words that would soon be all over the West Side and the rest of the city Frank Petersons name Yates grabbed Terry by the arm and started hustling him toward the snack shack and the parking lot beyond You can preach to the multitudes later, Maitland Right now youre going to jail And guess what We have the needle in this state, and we use it But youre a teacher, right You probably knew that They hadnt gotten twenty steps from the makeshift dugout before Marcy Maitland caught up and grabbed Tom Yatess arm What in Gods name do you think youre doing Yates shrugged her off, and when she tried to grasp her husbands arm, Troy Ramage pushed her away, gently but firmly She stood where she was for a moment, dazed, then saw Ralph Anderson walking to meet his arresting officers She knew him from Little League, when Derek Anderson had played for Terrys team, the Geralds Fine Groceries Lions Ralph hadnt been able to come to all the games, of course, but he came to as many as possible Back then hed still been in uniform Terry had sent him a congratulatory email when he was promoted to detective Now she ran toward him, fleet over the grass in her old tennis shoes, which she always wore to Terrys games, claiming there was good luck in them Ralph she called Whats going on This is a mistake Im afraid it isnt, Ralph said This part he didnt like, because he liked Marcy On the other hand, he had always liked Terry, as wellthe man had probably changed Dereks life only a little, given the boy just a smatter of confidence building, but when you were eleven years old, a little confidence was a big deal And there was something else Marcy might have known what her husband was, even if she didnt allow herself to know on a conscious level The Maitlands had been married a long time, and horrors like the Peterson boys murder simply did not come out of thin air There was always a build up to the act You need to go home, Marcy Right away You may want to leave the girls with a friend, because there will be police waiting for you She only looked at him, uncomprehending From behind them came the chink of an aluminum bat making good contact, although there were few cheers those in attendance were still shocked, and interested in what theyd just witnessed than the game before them Which was sort of a shame Trevor Michaels had just hit the ball harder than ever before in his life, harder even than when Coach T was throwing meatballs in practice Unfortunately, it was a line drive straight to the Bears shortstop, who didnt even have to jump to make the catch Game over.Praise for The Outsider Ajuicy tale that plays at the forefront of
