On the Mound
This is Connor's first year in kid pitch. Wow!! It really is different from coach pitch. We are quickly learning that without a good pitcher our team won't be very successful this season. Connor has shown interest in wanting to learn to pitch and was given the opportunity Thursday to demonstrate his skills. He pitched his alloted amount of pitches for the day before turning it over to the next guy. He still has some work to do but overall we were proud of his performance. I'd like to say that he didn't walk anyone but I can't. There were one or two that slipped into the mix. At this point the coach says that he is the #3 pitcher. The #1 and #2 pitchers are both 10 year olds. We'll see out the season turns out and how his technique improves.
It's a little blurry, but keep in mind I took it with my digital camera while looking through the fence. (Not with a video camera. It won't work for some reason.)
