Game 4 of the KO Pony season and we were up against Bridgeville Red at home. It was finally a nice day and we were ready to play ball. Daniel's teammate (and classmate since Kindergarten) Max was at his 3rd at bat in the 4th inning. He was 0-2 but his last at bat had a nicely hit ball that was just fielded a little better. This at bat, he was ready and lined a nice single to right and had his first hit of our young season! Best part was his Mom had just parked and was walking up and go to see the whole thing.
All through coach pitch and kid pitch to Little League, Max was always there to play, no matter what and the quote below has always reminded me of him. Nothing stopped him from playing and giving it his all.
Max went on to score that inning as the Ugly Dog Saloon brought home their fourth W. It was a great game by all the boys but the game ball went to Max!
Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.
