It was a hot one last month as I ventured out to see my nephew, Guy, play in a little league game. You may remember him from an earlier post in which he played tee-ball. Now, he’s in machine pitch which is a whole new ballgame, literally. Gone are the days of whacking the ball off the plastic tee. Now, the children have to hit a ball thrown to them via a metal pitching machine. I guess the idea is to get them ready for when one of them will take over as pitcher, which at the rate they’re all growing, won’t be too much longer.
