Put me in coach

Hot Rod loves to run the bases almost as much as he loves to hit the ball. He's a solid kid and put on some chunk last summer. He has lost most of that and is picking up his speed again. He used to be pretty quick.
He is a great first baseman. Here, he demonstrates some of that great skill. But, I have to say, his dad has some mad skillz at first base, too. One of his many talents. To be a big hairy guy, he can stretch at first.
This was a good play, too. The little bitty fella throwing the ball is a pretty good ball player despite his size. Hot Rod got some good props from the coach the other day. He pulled me aside to tell me that Hot Rod is one of his most solid players. That was nice to hear and just reinforces that I'm not one of those moms who thinks her son is the best one out there, but is really stinking it up. He's a good little ball player. He told me the other day that he wants to get a major league contract. He'll even sign with the Yankees if they paid him enough. :)

    Looks like he and I need to do some more work on his footwork at first. He has the wrong foot on the bag in both pictures.
