but during Sunday's tryouts the 8 year-old second sacker climbed the ladder to snag a liner, dove into short center field to steal a sure single and came up firing to start a double play, hit a couple of balls just over the third baseman's head (which is really as far as he can hit a ball) and, in spite of his father's warnings, made his mound debut and K'd both batters that he faced (despite having thrown the first two pitches completely over the catcher's head). The other fathers were going wild. as for princeton, he was just wondering where the heck this boy came from. mrs. princeton's got some 'splainin' to do
town team plays for 50 straight days beginning in late May. speaking of mrs. princeton-- will there still be a mrs. princeton at the end of those 50 days? stay tuned.
