    Since he was 8 years old and he and I threw in the backyard it has been his dream to hit 90.

    Everyone and I mean everyone said he was too small and he would never do it.

    The hat is for him. I wish I could get him more but I can't. After all he has achieved an "impossible" goal in his life.

    Yea little proud.

    Update;

    Played his first fall game today. Pitched the last 4 outs. Came in with bases loaded in the 8th with 2 outs. Struck out that batter.

    Struck out 3 gave up one hit.

    They had a gun on the scoreboard. He said his fastball was sitting on 87 and 88 consistently.

    Very good first game of the year. Sad I had to miss it but work you know....
