WONDERFUL CATCH The expression says it all. Yet the dirt being kicked up by his plant foot is a nice bonus.

Shot a LOT OF BB when my boys played and found Pitching the only really entertaining aspect from behind the camera. ( I'm a HUGE BB FAN)The rest was very SO-SO w/not a lot of return for the time you spend.
