First Time


A big ole boy was at bat and he'd struck out twice before already. Tension was high because they were way behind and big ole boy knew he needed a good hit because they only had 1 out left. He hit the ball with a loud whack and it went high and wayyyy long, the little center fielder saw it coming and started backing up, and up. Then a puff of dust when the ball landed in his mitt and a smile bigger than Montana he raised his mitt to show that the batter was OUT! Mommas and Daddies and his Nanaw cheered because they knew he'd been waiting for this opportunity.

He was so puffed up and proud I'm surprised his batting helment fit after that.

He just looks like a great baseball player... he has the pose down and the cocky head to side look. congrats to him for a great catch and save!

It's so nice to see them proud of themselves.

I hope the batting helmet fits -lol. Those things must cost a lot.

What a handsome center fielder you have there! Good catch Zach! And I bet Nanaw's head almost wouldn't fit into her truck on the way home! Isn't it just the biggest thrill when they do something spectacular???

That is the kind of thing he will never forget - one moment in the sun. I am sure there will be many more to follow.
