My 9-year old son and I spend a lot of time talking about hitting. And, to be candid, he knows more about swing mechanics than most kids in the 4th grade. Is this good? Well, if not, blame me…I suppose.
In any event, today, he’s not feeling all that great today – fever and a sore throat – and, it’s a soaker outside since the morning. So, we decided to chill in the family room this afternoon and pop the “2009 World Series Film” into the Blu-Ray player.
Well, we’re watching it – and the footage has a lot of A-Rod homers including a few in slow motion and super slo-mo.
After see a few of these Alex Rodriguez big flies, my son says to me “I don’t get it. A lot of times he seems to hit the ball off the end of the bat. But, when he hits it, the balls travels so far and goes out of the park.”
Out of the mouth of babes, right?
