Jack has been asking me to take him to a batting cage so that he can start to get tuned up for the little league try-outs in January. With Sharon on the road for a few days, he and I sent out early to try and find an open batting cage.
We ended up at the Batting Cages at Champions Golf Links. They only had one machine running that they said was throwing 55 to 60 miles an hour. Jack ended up taking 125 pitches. He got frustrated in the middle of the session at the speed of the pitches, but kept after it. Jack got his bat on a number of pitches and had a couple of solid hits. Overall, the speed was just too much for him.
In the late afternoon, Jack and I went out for a short run. We covered a little over two miles.
