Proud Dad Moment

Post by SoxIlliniRob on Thu May 31, 2018 11:12 am

I think you can click this link and see my oldest yesterday throwing the final pitch in a sectional playoff game yesterday, getting the strikeout, and advancing his team to the Sweet 16.  Hopefully you don't need Twitter to view this link, but the most recent post on this guy's page is a note that Zuiker got the strikeout and a 12 second vid of him throwing a sidearm splitter to a lefty on an 0-2 count to get the swing and miss and end the game.  He's a typical teen, so this is the most emotion he's shown in about 5 years.  The hitter is the son of former major league closer, Juan Acevedo.  His son is their number 3 hitter (and also throws lefty about 90 mph) and had flown out to the fence in each of his two prior at bats before this one.  Zak throws all of his pitches from any arm angle.  If you expand the video to full screen, you'll see that this pitch tails away from the hitter.  The tying run is on first base and the hitter is the potential winning run.  Bottom of the last inning.  The team they beat was the top seed in the tourney.


If you go to this guy's Twitter page, you have to scroll down to May 30 to view it.
