Turns out Will is pretty darn good at hitting a 37 MPH "fast" ball. He's also a decent fielder and a smart baserunner, and his understanding of baseball strategy is quickly catching up with that of the adults who instruct him on the field. In my opinion, Will is a ridiculously fun player to watch, not only because of his baseball skills, but because he loves the game. A couple of weeks ago he caught a pop fly to end the game, and the excitement that radiated from his little body (and his mouth) when he realized the ball had stayed in his glove lit up the entire field.
