Back to baseball

Training for the Majors started last night for Brendan.  He's been counting down the days since learning that he made the cut (and on the Red Sox).  After watching the boys practice last night it looks like they are going to have a great team, and Brendan may very well have a shot at pitching in his first year in the Majors.  THAT is something! His coaches were very impressed with not only the speed of his pitching, but the accuracy.  When you combine that with the fact that he's a lefty (which throws off the typical righty hitter) it makes for a great combination.  There are two other boys that are pretty good pitchers, too, so the coaches are going to watch the three of them throughout the next few weeks of practice and see what they like.  

Just before the sun completely set last night as the boys started practice.
