Playing the best team in the league.
So much pressure.
Blood pounding loud in the ears.
Block out the crowd.
Bases are loaded.
Get a hit.
Keep your eye on the ball.
Charlie Browned it. Oh well. Better luck next time.
Time to pitch for the first time ever.
This team is loaded with power hitters.
Best hitters we've seen yet.
Wish it was an easier team.
You can do it. Just relax. Focus. Don't worry. It will be ok. Teammates will help. They will help get the outs. Don't worry about Number 12. He is a power hitter. It's ok if he gets a big hit. Almost struck out Number 12. Yes! Keep up the good work. Arm's getting tired. It's ok. Hang in there. Doing great. Relax. Just playing a game of catch. Don't listen to the crowd. Over the top. Throw some strikes. Focus. Relax. Sling it in there. You can do it. It'll be alright.
I wonder what was going through Jack's mind during the game. This is why I never played organized sports. I can't handle the pressure.
Sunday afternoon in Charlotte.
