My First Minor League Pitch!



Wow, this was a dream come true...

Tonight was a great night! I threw out the first pitch during the Altoona Curve Minor League Baseball game! I think it was a strike. My dad took a picture and added video from this special night. I was soooo nervous and excited! I did my best to represent East End Baseball and Caporuscio's Team! When I threw the pitch, it didn't feel like it was that far to throw. From the mound to the plate was an easy throw for me... It was cool! Thank You Curve for a great night...

I hope to come back some day and pitch for a MLB minor league team!

The 2008 Little League World Series!


We had lots of fun at the Little League World Series In Williamsport, Pa! This is the "BIG SHOW!" Many of the teams we saw worked soooo hard to make it to this big game. We watched Japan, Mexico, Italy, Southwest US, and Great Lakes US all play action packed games. These teams play hard. We had fun sliding down the huge mountain out beyond center field and it was a good time with great friends. I hope to play here someday! My dad and I waited at the ESPN talent tent and we met and received autographs from Cy Young Award Winner & MLB World Series Pitcher & Winner for the LA Dodger Orel Hershiser. His autograph is above for you to enjoy... I also had my picture taken by Kelloggs Frosted Flakes during the games and they turned the picture into a cool baseball card. We had such a blast watching baseball and spending time with friends! Learn more about the Little League World Series by visiting http://www.littleleague.org/Little_League_Online.htm PLAY BALL!
