Swiiiing, Batter!

It took several games and a handful of peptalks, but finally, Max decided to swing away!

When the season began, Max came to the conclusion that he was much better off walking than taking a swing and possibly striking out.

So, game after game, he just waited.

And... to his credit, the result was usually a walk to first.

But, for the rest of us, it was painful. Afterall, Max has a great swing. He was just afraid.

On Wednesday night, after a bribe from his Mama and orders from his coaches to "swing at anything," Max finally did it!

The result:

A single and a double.

A game ball.

And...a smile that could not be wiped off that 9 year old face.
