Player of the Week

Brody

Meet Brody, Player of the Week, a nine year old pitcher who plays for the Royals in the 9/10 Elkhorn Slugger League.  He’s a third grader at Fireridge Elementary, where math is his favorite subject.  His parents are Jack and Janet.

9 year old pitcher

Brody is all business when he is on the mound.  He never takes his eye off the target, especially while delivering his three-finger fast ball.

Good Form

Nice, high leg kick — excellent form for such a young pitcher.  Brody is only 9 playing in the 9/10 year old division, so he has another year to play in this league.

110% Effort

Brody gives his all on every pitch.

Swinging for the Fences

Brody bats right and throws right.  He has other interestes besides baseball, like: football, biking and archery, but says he’d like to be a pro baseball player.  I’d say he has a pretty good start; he just looks like a baseball player.
