|Alex is a lefty which has proven to be lucky in both batting and pitching. They have played three games so far this season and he has had some great hits.|
Alex's real love is pitching and this year he has been able to pitch part of each game so far.
Birch was commenting when looking at these pictures how "violent" the pitching motion is. I sure hope that his shoulder survives baseball.
So far they have had an awesome season. My favorite was the last game that they won 12-0 and with the ten home run rule the game only lasted five innings.
I've really appreciated Alex's coach as he keeps telling his team that he wants them to be "classy" ball players. In the past foul language has been a nasty part of baseball (both the coaches and teammates). It is so hard as a parent to want your kids to pursue their passion but also not wanting them to be around all the garbage that is sometimes apart of it.
So bring on the sun, take away the wind, and let's get ready for some peanuts and cracker jacks!
