Neto was waiting by Andy’s locker the next morning. “He had tears in his eyes,” Andy remembers. “He said that adult fans were swearing at the Mexican players and that it wasn’t fair. He was really hurting. He said, ‘Is there any way you can help?’ I told him I’d try.”

He asked for the school’s support in dealing with the crowd. “The principal told me he hadn’t heard adults say those things,” Andy recalls. “He said some of the parents would have to call him and complain before the school administration could get involved. He said Neto had probably heard it out of context anyway.” Andy stormed out angrily.
