Alan worked on his hitting skills in more depth tonight at baseball practice. The class started with a race to get warm, then moved to hitting soft toss with a whiffle bat into a screen. Alan was first in line to hit, then he helped Daddy (the soft tosser) gather the whiffle balls while the other kids took their turns.
At the next station, Alan went first again when the class instructor held out the training stick. This drill required an aluminum bat, and Alan was proud to volunteer his personal bat for the class to use.
