This was shot in the 9th inning of the championship game of the 2012 Carpenter Cup Classic, in the Phillies' Stadium.
This boy's team had just left three men on base in the 8th inning, pretty much killing their chances to tie the game.
There would be no Championship joy, as the Team, which had been STELLAR went down one-two-three in the Ninth.
The boy is gazing up at the scoreboard here.
