Little Pitcher

This week the team moved away from coaches pitching and let the kids pitch. Paul was first up, and just like when I watch him bat, I find my hands are suddenly sweating. I want to look away, but I can’t. I get incredibly nervous to see my little guy out there.DSC_3959He looks so big and mature out on the field. Almost like I can’t recognize him his socks pulled high and the concentration on his face. Or maybe it is if I squint, I can visualize him as a high schooler. The coach gave him a couple pointers a few weeks ago and it has made a world of difference. I didn’t come from a world of team sports as a child. It is all new to me, and I love getting to see baseball through the eyes of an eight-year old.
