Baseball Training

This morning, before Bug's baseball game, I was working with him on his batting. The boy needed some serious help. Part of what I taught him was 'the power angle' (for those that don't know, your joints are at their most powerful around 120 degrees angle...useful knowledge). He got it, and was looking good, and off to the game we went. At one point, while waiting for his turn at bat, he was apparently trying to show someone else on his team this secret, and he came running over to me asking what it was called again, and I told him, and he ran off happily. Finally, he gets up to bat. His stance looks great, he's ready, and after a couple pitches that he missed, we shouted some encouragement. Before the next pitch, he turns toward me, and in a loud, clear voice that carries over everyone, he yells,

"I'm using the Power Angle!!!"

Damn, that was funny...but I was awfully proud...even if he still can't hit.
