I have picked up a baseball bat a grand total of four times in my life. So you can imagine the immense talent I possess. Picture it with me just for a second. Yes, I know…. Epic embarrassment. You are about to see video evidence to support this in just a moment. And? Said video just happens to include pitches and coaching from one of the greatest in the game: Cal Ripkin, Jr. To his credit, he refrained from telling me that my 5 year old son was more talented at bat than I am. (he would have been correct, but I digress)
The truth is… my lack of talent notwithstanding… I had FUN…. and even more to the point, each swing of my bat was accomplishing something good. Watch and I’ll explain….
