2011 Favorites: 6. A kid with just the right attitude

There’s nothing much you can do during the National Anthem — except look around for photo opportunities. This is one I found while standing right behind home plate.

If you’ve ever been to just about any Minor League game you’ll know that selected youth ballplayers often run out onto the field with the position players just before the game, and they stay there for the National Anthem.

There was just something about this young kid, with the shades and the hat held just in the right position over his heart. He seemed right at home standing there with the umps and the Greenville Drive catcher. The kid has style.
