My reply was " My job is to get him there and tear up as he holds that big ol' bat. You know I know nothing about sports!" The first time I even saw a jock strap was an unfortunate scene in The hangover.

the fact that he requests to practice in the shade....priceless!
It could be a long season but I wouldn't miss it!
