5 Easy Steps to Throw a Ball: Teach Your Kid to Pitch a Baseball

As you can see, Owen's totally bored of always being assigned the catcher position. He is ready to pitch damn it. Luckily his gym teacher deconstructed the process of throwing a baseball and gave him  5 easy steps to become a pitcher. I had to share it. As soon as the weather warmed up, we headed to our favorite field and grabbed a few high-bounce balls to put it to the test . . .

Step One: Make a T shape with your arms
Step Two: Make a L with your throwing arm
Step Three: Point in the direction you want to throw the ball
Step Four: Step forward with your front foot
Step Five: Throw the ball. 
Isn't that great? Owen was so adorable as he taught Ella the steps. Love that kid. See the pictures after the jump.

  6. I think you've got tons to brag concerning! and that i would not worry about being "overly boastful" as a result of you are tooting your own horn! i prefer to listen to the great stuff that folks do. It's far better than hearing the long list of crap and ailments they're experiencing over ... and over ... and once again. Hearing dangerous stuff all the time is simply not smart.

  9. I am ROSE SMITH from CANADA a single parent, before my husband died he left us with so much DEBT that we could not cope with life, I was totally confused on what to do. When I was going through the internet I came across a POST by MARCUS CAFE about how Mrs JULIA NAVARO help him to get a loan so I applied for the loan from JULIA NAVARO through her mail (navaroloancompany@yahoo.com) of $200,000 with a duration of 10 years. When I was applying for the loan I made a vow to GOD that if I get the loan I will let the world know what she did for me, to my greatest surprise my loan was granted with
    an interest of 2%. I was able to settle my debt and start up a new life and business with a settled family. So if you want any type of loan for as low as 2% please contact JULIA NAVARO on her mail navaroloancompany@yahoo.com.I just fulfilled my vow.
