He knows we are huge Reds fans and of course that would mean possibility spending some time with Votto. The hard thing is my son plays on the High School team and is a senior this year. His season starts the next week after the WBC is over so he would miss a week of practice and a week of school. My son is super excited but I honestly don't know what to do.
I'm with everyone else - this is the sort of chance you only get once, so he should go. Get with his teachers to have his assignments for him to work on during the trip at night and his coaches shouldn't mind him getting the chance to be around players of that caliber - he'll learn a ton about how to prepare like a pro.
