Blue Light In Centerfield

I receive the following email today:

I wanted to tell you about an incident that happened when I was in high school in 1974. I lived in a town near Scranton, PA. The neighbor kid had a little league game one late summer afternoon and his mom asked if I could drive him to the field. I volunteered to bring him back home also since I didn't have anything else going on.

The kids were 10-12 year olds, but I didn't mind sitting there with other kids and parents. I'd say that there about 20 people watching the game.

About 4:30 pm the game was winding down. I happened to be looking into the outfield watching the kid in center field (not the neighbor boy). He was turning around and looking towards the woods behind him. No one else was paying attention to him. I kept watching him. He looked like he was getting antsy and concerned about something behind him. Then a bright blue light shot out of the woods and hit this kid in the back. It dropped him face-first to the ground. The kid in right field shouted out and everyone took notice, running toward the outfield.

The boy looked fine because he started to sit up before anyone got to him. Nobody saw the light that hit the kid and he didn't mention anything about seeing something the woods. He was wobbly, so one of the adults carried him to their car. I supposed they took him to the hospital.

The funny thing is that I never heard anything further about the incident. In fact, according my younger sister who knew the boy, he never came back to school after summer vacation.

I never did mention the blue light because I was scared people would think I was nuts. These many years later, I wonder if I should reported the details to the authorities?
