After a month-long break from baseball (which has felt like forever), Bennett’s team kicked off their fall ball season today.
Matt couldn’t be there, which meant that he was missing Bennett’s 1-inning pitching debut. I told him I’d take pictures or a video and send it to him.
I think Bennett threw a couple of pitches and then I remembered to start recording (just using my phone, which explains why it’s zoomed out so far and the quality is what it is).
Here is the amazing video I captured. Listen closely and you can hear his coach call him Bam-Bam, the nickname he earned 2 years ago that has stuck like glue (so much so that I even call him that sometimes). And, pardon my loud cheering at the end:
Yeah. About that. Obviously, I got a little excited and just watched the game instead of the camera getting the action. Dang it! It was such a great play and I was *thisclose*.
Clearly, I’m very good at this.
And Matt, you’re welcome for capturing this for you. Sorta.
Oh, and the Tigers won 18-2.
