"brian pearson" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney

"Right. Well that's great hitters of asked him for years now again buster you talk about adjustments are hitters. Today frankly are not very good at making adjustments. They have one beautiful swing. And that's the only swing they have if you throw it in that bad path. It's not a line drive to left field. It's twenty rose up. That's what separates. Miguel cabrera is his ability to make those adjustments which he started doing when he was eighteen years old planet venezuela and was doing in the big leagues as a twenty year old. That's the separator is he. Looks and says. I'm not gonna stride on this play. I'm going to swing the bat differently. It's going to be a different it back in the last one. And that's what a lot of other guys can't do that. He has always been able to do is adjust to the pitcher situation. Whatever it takes so he hits five hundred home runs. I don't think he's going to get three thousand dollars this year. He's got forty five to go but early next year. Ob having similar conversations about his His place in history to me He should be annonymous selection for the hall of fame when his name comes up. iron williamsport At last night we had the little league classic between the indians and the angels and look. The ballpark was mostly filled last night. But i know from talking with you and others Earlier in the day the fact that they're just not as many people here With the kobe restrictions changes the event to some degree. Yes yes. Of course. I mean there. There is nothing better than lamberti stadium on a night. Game with twenty five thousand people here and the hill just filled with people sitting on blankets watching baseball game. There's nothing better than that. And we haven't had that however the the play again. This year has been so good. That i am as always totally dazzled that the twelve year old this good they get on the mound buster they throw the ball they swing at it. They throw it back to the pitcher and the same thing happens. The game moves so quickly and it reminds me that the big league games. Don't move like that anymore. Because guys aren't getting on the mound thrown it and trying to hit the infield play especially the tennessee shortstop. Brian pearson was ridiculous. The four webcams he made in one game. I've seen the hawaii shortstop now twice and kids a high school shortstop already. And he's twelve years old so i'm not gonna. I am not going to say that. I'm not enjoying this because enjoyed every second of it without the fancier because kids are still here and ultimately what we're here to do is watch twelve year olds play. I am mesmerized by them. I watch all a whether there's no one in the stands or a twenty five thousand here. And i gotta say this. I really feel like the last year. Only saw major league games with note fans in the ballpark that the players really affected. I don't see little kids being. They're not thinking about that during the course of games right absolutely not. That's the point they know when the game's over they're gonna eat pizza and ice cream but these kids competancy other thing buster. I've been saying this for six years since i come here. These kids stand right on top of the plate. I mean right on top of the plate and they don't flinch and they don't bail and they don't cry when they get hit by a pitch fear of the ball runs all sorts of kids out of this game at a very young age. First time you get hit you go. Wow that was really hurt at now. I'm afraid these kids are not afraid. I heard a story again yesterday. One of the coaches one of their kids got hit in the eye with a pitch flat straight in the eye any came back and played soon after that because he's not afraid that's the separator between the best kids at this age and so many others is their courage and their fearlessness. When there's a kid twice their size throwing seventy miles an hour and they stick their face right in there. And say i'm taking ab here do what you have to do. It's really impressive. Give me the moment when you were a little leaguer when you cried all my brother at me in the head with a pitch in practice when i was in i was probably seven. We didn't even have those full helmets back then. It was like it was just side at a little flaps on the side and nothing on the top. My brother had a great arm. He still does by the way and he's sixty five years old and he hit me in the flap with a with a pitch in practice am seven man. It really hurt. So i cried and burke with my brother had made so i cried more than once. That was the first time remember. Cry- i get hit. A bat was thrown by a childhood. Friend bryant pearson. Hit me in the right. I still have a scar above my right eye. And and i got hit by a foul ball. In the first game i ever played. Hit me right in the stomach. It felt like it knocked all the wind out of me. So i stabbed myself as a crier in my first little a. Game for sure But i would say this. I played on bad teams throughout my little league. Time so losing wouldn't make me cry. I was just used to that with a teams that i played on..

Keep this g. rated jake. Of course of course none of us really got into too much trouble up there in summit but a saturday night in high school for me. typically was right after a football game or basketball game football games. Being friday nights saturdays were kind of a recovery day Honestly you could find me shooting hoops all day long. Even during football season obviously during basketball season and in the spring You know northeast corner. is a big basketball town in our family especially just loved the love. The sports you can find me playing basketball and then later on There happened to be a volleyball game or whatnot Me and my friends would go to that. And one thing. I'm thinking of is. We used to play main street football on saturdays. You guys did that to on the lights you bet. We never did get to shoot hoops and a tipped over silo but we did play some main street football the barn atmosphere. But yeah i think of mean lucas pearson and brian pearson and chase o'farrell and and the boys on main street just throwing the football around under the main street lights. We did that almost every single saturday. So that's kind of where brought me. What about you mitch. What's going on in brentford high. Yeah brentford high. You bet you bet population sixty five. When i graduated but it's getting bigger. Got some families moving into town which is kinda cool We kept it.

We made it kind of deal would always go out to eat and stuff like that you know growing up in high school dayton.
