So in my efforts to adapt to American Life I have come here to Ooltewah to train with the Ooltewah owls who are 9 and 10 year old baseball players

They said it would be easy, maybe for them, but not for me.

Coach advice,"If someone one is on first then you want to throw right here to Second base"
"why wouldn't they be over there" I asked
"There would be someone on first and thenthe guy hits it to you and then the other guy is advancing to second"

I didn't know what he was saying but he was very friendly and supportive.

A familiar face was also calling the shots, Mr Joe Legge.

"We are forth graders we want stickers.. I want stickers too, give me stars for coaching"

I was taught how to catch
but It was hard, yet Hitting was impossible.

It seemed like a lot of running around.

Coach Legge and My Mentor gave their final words.

"Your hitting is improving it's important to not just swing at junk"

"It felt good for me and I hope it did for you, I think your improving"

Its hard this baseball stuff!
