Johnny had a chance to play catcher in the first two innings of last night's game. By the end of the 2nd inning, he was definitely getting the hang of it. It takes some guts to get out there and let a ball thrown by a pitching machine come straight for you, but Johnny has what it takes. They have the kids keep their non glove hand behind their backs so it doesn't get hit/stung.
In the video below you'll hear Donnie giving Johnny some guidance. Coach Hugh (upper left in the collage) was also on Johnny's right giving instructions. I might have had a thing to say too;-) I like the through the fence angle with the ball coming straight at the camera. You can see the ball in the collage top right. When the ball would hit the fence I'd get some sharp sand sprayed on me:-) Gritty!
