Jack Waddingham’s strong play on the pitchers’ mound, at the plate — he homered during pool play — and on the field helped his Dr. Phillips Little League 11-year-old All-Star team to a district championship. After that, Waddingham and his teammates went 1-1 in the Section 5 Tournament, ending their postseason run.
I was very excited, because we beat a really good team (Winter Garden) in the finals. I knew it from the start that we had a really good team, from what I had seen in the regular season.
Probably the first game against Winter Garden, because everyone had a good game.
I think we did (well) in the first game. We hit really well in the first game, but in the second game, the pitchers (for Oviedo) were a little faster, so we had to adjust.
Probably just to be ready and practice against faster pitchers; get used to the speed.
Probably (a fastball) right over the outside corner. Keep the batter guessing.
I was really excited, because that was the first home run I had hit in All-Stars, and it came against a really good team.
I think Wrigley Field, because it looks like the most fun to play in with the ivy on the walls.
To always keep a positive attitude, even if you’re down, because you can always come back and win at some point. My parents told me that.
Math — I think it’s really easy, and I’m really good with numbers.
Fractions. It goes along with everyday life — like cooking proportions.
I would probably like to be an umpire or a baseball announcer.
Forza Horizon 3. It’s very (addicting) — I get to take all my anger out on cars on the road.
The Ford Shelby GT-R.
