He wanted to play ball this year.
Out of the clear blue.
He walked in knowing nothing about the game, and had no idea that the rest of these boys started tee ball at age 4.
He did everything the coaches asked with all the energy and good attitude you can imagine, never losing face.
Coach says you never walk on a baseball field, and my guy only runs.
Even in the early practices when he dropped every single ball that was thrown to him.
So last nights game ball was no surprise. Even though we lost (to a great team!) Zack fielded great, hit a double bringing in a runner for Zack's first RBI, and later stole two bases, getting himself into position for a run of his own.
Coach looked pleased as punch to be giving that ball to Z. I am so grateful for these coaches who put a lot of work into arguably the "worst" kid on the team.
So proud of the character Zack has shown this season.
