Role in the Story Edit
After discovering that HAL has given her a keen sense of targeting, Theresa remembers that Tommy often throws baseball with his friends. She goes over to his house, and they take turns throwing the ball. Every single time she throws, Theresa hits right at Tommy's chest. Even at thirty feet, Theresa continues to hit dead on.
Tommy's father comes out, having noticed just how good Theresa was, and starts throwing with her. Even at forty feet, Theresa continues to hit dead on. When they quit for the day, Tommy's father comments that Theresa is so good "she might pitch for the Red Sox."
After this, Tommy is never heard about in the story again.
