Re: Matt In Char Nc
Thanks for the kind compliments, RedsBaron. I'm just glad that I can help him with his game, which is something that I received very little of when I was a kid. A lot of the parents around the ballfield ask where he goes for hitting lessons and who his hitting coach is. (You'd have to understand the South Charlotte area where we live. A little different for a country boy from Cabell Co.) I heard him say once, "My garage and my dad." Kind of got a chuckle out of that one.
I hear a lot of fathers say that their kids won't listen to them, but that has never been the case with Matt. I feel very fortunate in that regard. The thing that I see with Matt is that he has a lot of confidence because of the work that we put in, plus, there is a measure of trust involved with us. We have a "run-in" from time to time when I get a little to critical for his liking. but for the most part, he really listens.
