Here's a 60 second video clip of Sam batting during the championship game last weekend.
Sam always likes to put pressure on the pitchers getting as close to the plate as he can without the umpire coming down on him – he's already managed to get hit 6 times this season. At this bat, the kids, Sam included had discovered it annoyed the pitcher by smiling big at him. You can't see it on this clip, but I assure you he was grinning ear-to-ear.
Sam gets a little annoyed on the second pitch (20 sec mark) when the pitcher throws inside attempting to back Sam off the plate. What fun! All I can say, is my 11 year old is a lot braver than I.
