Well I guess this was bound to happen. Elliot broke the growth plate in his thumb. He is fine thank God! It could have been worse. He is such a good athelete and so strong that I think he forgets to bring it down a bit when he is playing. He can be very extreme and this time he was a bit over the top. He hung himself by his thumb in his basketball hoop. He then decided to go to his friends (they are right behind us ) and seek help from his buddie. He was afraid I would "make him stop playing and come in the house"!! Of course I would have!!
He is doing fine but out of baseball for 3 weeks!! We warned him something "bad" would happen if he kept up with the kind of "tricks " he was trying to do.This is quite a blow for the star pitcher /player. Needless to say his coaches were not happy! This is a lesson in We told you not to do that!!!!
