Pitch, Hit, Run, Kick

WOW I'm really behind on this post. My bad. Thanks to my brother for these shots.

On Sunday, Learn To Be hosted the Aquafina MLB Pitch, Hit, & Run event at Toyon Park in Anaheim. Kids basically ran some baserunning, pitching, and hitting drills for points and the opportunity to advance to the next round and eventually participate in the 2009 World Series. I used to play little league in the first grade! I wish I stuck with it. Some of these kids are pretty good. We even got a little coverage from the Orange County Register! Very little... ah well.

What One's Wearing: Huf hat, In4mation x 5&A Dime tee, Uniqlo denim, Laser Blue AM90 IDs. Steezeburger.

Stephen: The Coach.

I was out there volunteering a little, manning the pitch station. Kids got 6 balls to pitch at a strikezone. The best kid hit 5 of 6.

No gender discrimination!

This kid was my favorite (no pedo). You always gotta cheer on the little guy.

When you're here, you're in Angel country.


At the end of the event, we announced the winners for the various age groups.

The volunteers: Bruce, Mario, Jon, Juliana, Cesar, Joe, me, Stephen, James, Bryan. Supposedly doing "my" pose. F*ck you guys lol!

Time for the volunteers to have some fun.


We were able to get a 5-on-5 game going which is tough when you're working with such a huge field. We had to make some modifications to the game. Modify. Modify. Modify.



Bryan launches one.

Diana being an emo kid behind the fence. How was your run?

Cesar launching one.

And The Ringer made an appearance: Jeff Rusthoven.

Hopefully we can get a bigger game going in the future.

Rookie card.

Knockin' some balls around.

When I played little league, would you believe I was a pitcher? Actually I played left-field, but the best damn fielder on our team back in the day!

After a long evening a few of us hit up the local Pizza Hut for some Panormous action. Brimo in da house. He matches the table.

Jon on his dSLR tip.

YES! One of the best deals from Pizza Hut. Go get yours already.

Everybody stuffed their faces. Goodnight.
