My oldest son turned 8 right around Opening Day. He's a huge baseball fan (no surprise, I know). He was born on April 4th (4/4) at 6:44am and I was wearing my Reggie jersey (#44), it being Opening Day and all. Needless to say, his favorite number is 44 and he's a baseball nut.
Coach: Who here has a cup on?
Kids: (maybe 3 hands go up; scary, I know!)
Coach: Which of you wants to catch?
My son, after a pregnant pause: I do!!!
Coach: You sure?
My son: Definitely.
Coach: OK, let's go!
