Playing against Jean Machi

Our grandkids, in Folsom, CA Little League, have tough competition. Jean Machi is an opposing coach, and his team is excellent. The other day their infield recorded a scoreless inning, nailing 3 batters with good throws and catches. At age 8 or less. I may ask him to sign my well-worn 2014 and 2012 shirts, but he dashes off mid-game to coach his older kid. His team is serious. Long sit-down meetings after the game, solid 8 year old hitting, they recognize the strike zone even though they don't have to at this level.
