Exactly a week ago, this kid was in bed with a 104 degree fever. Last time Jalen had a fever he was still in diapers so this experience is very new to him. He didn’t go to school all week nor did he participate in any practices before the tournament today. He didn’t expect to play today but, he insisted in going to support his teammates.
Coach asked him to pinch run. He stole second… he stole third… then he scored off a wild pitch. He was happy to help his team win. We are so very proud of him.
