6 for the Kid.


But I am a bigger Jonah Heim fan. That is my nephew who is currently trying out for the USA Jr. Olympic baseball team. Jonah has made it to the top 120 tryouts in the United States (which is amazing to me). My nephew is 6'0 or 6'1 switching hitting catcher. Man, I could watch him play baseball all day. He doesn't get a big head or ahead of himself. Actually I am pretty sure he remembers more of failures than HRs, HITS, and his awesome ability to call and catch a game. Trust me the positives far out weigh the letdowns.

BUT, the real reason why I am a Jonah Heim fan is because of this picture.

This is his jersey for tryouts. He specifically asked for the number 6 in honor of his pop's. See that was/is my dad's birthday. I know that my dad is able to see this and it brings a smile to his face... Thanks Jonah for keeping level head and realizing what is truly important. Good luck buddy!
AND Thank you for reading

Six is a wonderful number. He is a special kid for sure, more like Derk Jeter than anyone else. Same attitude and work ethic. Hope he goes as far as DJ.
