I found a thin wiffle ball bat in the attic yesterday, so after trimming the bushes this morning we gave it a try. He adjusted to it pretty quickly, though couldn't hit it as far. I think I am going to go out and see if I can find a T-Ball bat to get him started.
He made me laugh today as he initiated a ground ball drill today while we were waiting for Mom to get ready ... brought me a ball and asked for some grounders in the living room. Ha Ha.
I'd say he is a chip off the old block, but that'd be a lie. His old man's focus was always on hitting the ball.
RIC, why no underhand? I think I have stumbled on this myself and have been tossing to him moslty with an overhand flip on bended knee, but I am interested in why you feel this way.
Also, teach him to be a lefty, and once he's of suitable age, teach him some breaking stuff.
There's a great market for lefty pitchers between the ages of 20 and 43, it seems.
