Mad Max (nickname chosen by Max)

I'm pretty sure I already posted about this, but I wouldn't be doing my blog justice if I didn't include a picture of Max all done up in his baseball uniform. Max is a great little slugger, has a strong arm, and spits sunflower seeds like a pro. Now that he's playing kid-pitch, Max has had to learn how to judge a strike from a ball. Coming from machine pitch where every ball is a strike, Max has struggled to decide when he should swing and when he should wait for a better pitch. During a quick coaching moment, Aaron advised Max to swing if the ball was pitched in the strike zone. Realizing that the majority of his teammates were walked, Max replied, "I don't want to swing, I want to get on base!"
