San Jose Astros WIN!!!!!!!!!!!

Good stuff Kirby! Kirby came out with a very commanding changeup on Sunday mixing it in with a great spot fastball. The Astros played great defense behind him and came through with some timely hitting late in a tied ball game. Rich Potter reached on an error that scored Charles Missouri this left the bases loaded for the "clutch" Reggie Woodard who drove in two insurance runs with a big time single that all but sealed it, that left him 1 for 3 with 2 rbi's and a sb. From there Gabe Alcantar…See More

Thanks for the feedback on the video. I know alot of people teach to keep the elbows down in an inverted "V", which is great. However, we purposely put his elbow up to remind him on the load the bat should go straight back, following the point of the elbow. This helps kids who have a tendency to drop their hands or dip. And he is one of those kids who tends to get "sloppy" when he gets to much confidence.
