“C.mon, Jensen!” He could hear his dad yelling, even over all the other parents’ cheering.
He tipped his hat back with a finger, pulled back his arm and pitched the ball. The batter missed on his swing and the baseball landed with a sharp thwack in the catcher’s glove.
“Out!” the umpire called.
Cheers from the home team drowned the boos from the away team and Jensen heard his dad’s signature whistle telling him he was doing a good job. They were nearing the end of the sixth inning and Jensen’s arm was getting tired. Their team was only one down, though and Jensen had powered through the pain before.
The third batter stepped up to the plate and readied himself for Jensen’s pitch. If he could strike this player out, they could start the seventh inning and they would have a chance to win the game. Jensen rotated his shoulder, trying to relieve some of the tension that was built up. It didn’t work. Jensen wound back and threw the ball. Strike. Shift, stretch, wind, toss. Strike. Shift, stretch, wind, toss. Tear.
