Kimberly baseball heading to State

I was deeply concerned at this game. Baseball... God knows I love it... but darn... you'll stand there for 5 innings and nothing will happen. You might even have a score of 6-6 and nothing has happened as far as making pictures is concerned.

Thankfully this brave right-fielder gave his all for a foul ball and raked his face through the gravel warning track. Now that's dedication!

Of course, shortly after the attempt, his coach yelled from the bench that had he really been sprinting he would have caught it. Nothing's ever good enough is it?
