Meet Josh, a 2.8 year old slugger who likes to imitate his big brother … and any other baseball player he sees on TV. Josh, son of Jason and Melea, attends Westwood’s Mom’s Day Out and his favorite subject is ball.
Josh enjoys any sport with a ball, but this is baseball season. He’ll play baseball with a whiffle ball, golf ball, ping pong ball, nerf ball, bouncy ball or rock, but he prefers a hard ball … like his big brother uses.
Like most big hitters, his eyes get real big when he sees the ball.
Besides hitting, Josh loves to pitch; he hides the ball from the batter while he reads the catcher’s sign.
He keeps his eye on the target during his wind up.
He tries to intimidate the batter by throwing as hard as he can.
Josh throws mostly fast balls, officialy timed at 7.3 mph, but his gravity curve-ball can also be effective against unsuspecting batters. When Josh’s big brother suits up for his game, Josh grabs his hat, bat, ball and glove and follows him to the ball park. Josh doesn’t go to watch his big brother, he goes to play!
Thought for the Day: Little League baseball is a good thing ’cause it keeps parents off the streets and the kids out of the house. Yogi Berra
