Fall Ball

So, the boy plays LF for the first inning of every game 1 (double-headers every Sunday)

The boys he plays with are mostly 2-3 years older than him, but he holds his own

May not hit it as far, but he knows what he's doing. 1-5 so far with 2 walks and a HBP

 He pitches an inning each weekend, too
 He doesn't look small out there
 And, even better, he looks comfortable - like he belongs on the bump
 This weekend they beat the Orioles and the Cubs
 Did I mention that they're the Yankees?
 I'm not sure why we don't have pictures of him playing infield
 He plays two innings of SS and one inning of 2B every weekend, too, but he looks good at-bat, doesn't he?!
 Needs to work on his base-running - after all, this would be his first kid-pitch league
 So far on the hill, he's thrown two scoreless innings. 4 K's, 0 BB's, 3 hits, total of 7 balls thrown - 'strike machine'?
I have to admit that he looks like a natural catcher, too.
Thanks for the new chest-protector and shin-guards, Grandma and Grandpa!
