We were always told that the first year of NYO kid-pitch would be a long season, mostly due to the kids getting used to pitching, and hitting against fellow players instead of coaches. Well it hasn’t been horrible, Ben has definitely been hit a lot, and you can tell when he is up to bat that it’s going through his mind. Up until today our Whitesox have not won a game, we are something like 0-13, but today was our day. I took a video of the last few minutes of the game just in case and it paid off. We won our first game in style, stealing 3 runs in the bottom of the 5th inning.
