I second PonyUmp. He's working hard and striving to be the best he can become. Anyone who invites critiques/criticism from knuckleheads like us deserves a shot!

absolutely a second on Ponyump.... Takes balls of steel to post videos and open yourself up to critiques, not only that but follows it up with the pointers he has been given with a demonstarion in another video.

"To stare down a big league pitcher. To stare him down, and just as he goes into his windup, wink. Make him think you know something he doesn't. That's what I wish for. Chance to squint at a sky so blue that it hurts your eyes just to look at it. To feel the tingling in your arm as you connect with the ball. To run the bases - stretch a double into a triple, and flop face-first into third, wrap your arms around the bag." Dr. Archibald "Moonlight" Graham
