Hitting Clinic with Michael Cuddyer

Sooooo, I'm a little late blogging this.  About 3 months late.  Oops.

Way back in December Wyatt went to a baseball camp with Michael Cuddyer.  He's from our area, and for the last few years he's had small clinics for local kids when he's here.  Wyatt loves watching him play on TV, and he stayed up late to watch him in the Home Run Derby last year.

When we told him he was going to a hitting clinic with him he was over the moon excited.  It was only a few days before Christmas, and it was kind of fun because he talked more about the camp than he did about Christmas  leading up to it.  I guess it's not every day that you get to hit with the National League batting champ!
(BJ and Justin Upton were also supposed to be there, but they weren't able to make it at the last minute.)

He rotated through a few stations before he got to hit with Cuddyer.

So excited to meet him!
Here he is hitting while Cuddyer pitched to him.  He got an "ooooh" from his group around 55 seconds in.  Cuddyer told him that he did awesome and that's how you're supposed to hit the ball.  His little six year old life was made!

They got autographs at the end, and Michael asked Wyatt whether his favorite team was the Yankees or the Dodgers, and Wyatt said both!  He said he understood and it was cool  that he had an American League team and a National League team.

I can't believe I completely forgot to blog about this. It's a good thing Wyatt spent the rainy afternoon glued to the Dodgers/Rockies spring training game - served as a nice reminder - ha!
