A few weeks ago Jack broke his elbow. He was playing Freeze Tag, nothing out of the normal. He came off the slide full speed ready to run instead he got ahead of his feet and landed on his elbow. He is in a cast for 3 weeks, hopefully next Wednesday he'll get it off. He's been pretty disappointed to be out of baseball for the rest of the season, but he's had a great attitude and continued to want to go sit with the team in the dugout.
About a month ago he hit a home run and ended up scoring the only run of the game. I thought for sure he would get the game ball, instead it went to another player who had one of his better games in the field. After two games encouraging his team in the dugout and showing up to support them he got the game ball. It was a great opportunity to talk about character over performance.
Now his just claims this Fall is going to be busy... school and fall ball!
