The Reds

R.J. really likes baseball. But last year he really lost his confidence. He struck out almost every time he was at bat, and was feeling like he was done with baseball. I'm glad he played again this year. We kept him down instead of moving him up to Majors, and he had a really good year. His team lost about the same amount of games as they won, but R.J. had some really good hits at bat, some really good plays on the field, and even got to start pitching, which is something he's always wanted to do. He wasn't a great pitcher, it was his first season every doing it, but he improved every game, and towards the end, started striking people out. He loved it! Oops, the wind up is a little out of order, but I think it's so cute watching him pitch. :o) It was also incredibly stressful. There's a lot of pressure on the pitcher! Receiving the trophy The Team
