Little different from the normal banter...

I went to a high school game last night, summer league stuff.

There was a guy with one arm playing.

I watched him, with one arm, drill a ball down the third baseline that touched the fence at 300+ feet. Double for him.

He started at first base.

Gave me a new impression on how little I accomplished in HS/college with two functioning arms.

My 401K is now a 400K (was 301K)

Arm was completely missing or did he have a Jim Abbot stump? Either way, the fact that he's batting is very impressive.

Jim Abbot stump.

Batting was the most impressive thing. I understand he plays football as well. I'll be going to lots more HS games this coming year.

When he batted swatted the ball like you or I would a tennis racket. Amazing. The pitcher was throwing probably low to mid 80s on him on his fastball. We were sitting right behind home plate, the pitcher had a pretty wicked curve ball and fast ball.

I was talking to one of the parents (not his parents) and he told me that he is one of the top players on the team and the team was pretty damn good.
