When my oldest son was a preschooler, he had imaginary friends. But these weren’t just made up anybodies. Instead, he chose his favorite sports characters from across different sports to be his friends. There were times when they were life-sized or bigger and other times when they could fit in the palm of your hand. It was adorable. One of his “imaginary” friends was a Pittsburgh baseball legend…Bobby Bonilla.
