Today was the second day of Drew's Claremore tournament. The other team was hitting really well with a couple going to right field. This one was hit over Drew's head.
Drew picking up the ball all the way at the fence.
Drew popped up quick looking for the cutoff man.
Giving it his all from the fence in right field.
Drew had never been hit by a ball while batting...until today.
The previous photo with the blurry ball was right before Drew was hit. This is Drew right after he was hit as the ball bounced off of his back.
Ouch! Everyone in the stands winced. Drew took a few seconds then toughed it out and took his base.
Drew taking a nice lead off of first base.
And, an even bigger lead off of second base.
Finally, safe at home.
Drew throwing the cutoff man, with the ball in midair, in a play almost exactly like the previous one. Drew also had a couple of good backups (but not good photos) behind first base where in kept the runner from going to second.
The next time up at bat, Drew smacked one as hard as he'd ever hit one before. I think he was taking revenge on the ball for hitting him the last time up. It was a line drive to the outfield that went hard into the outfield fence. Unfortunately, Drew swung so fast that he was ahead of the ball and hit it barely 3 or 4 inches foul of third base.
Now that is the look of intensity!
Drew's second at bat ended on this terrific swing. I swear looking at the pictures, there must have been a hole in his bat as Drew was dead on with great form, good eye on the ball, perfect timing, everything right, but somehow the ball went right though his bat. Nothing wrong with getting out on a strong swing. Despite being close, Drew's team wound up losing the game.
Drew had a war wound the next day.Posted by Don |
