As a kid, only large sums of candy and Christmas presents rival the excitement of getting a home run ball at a baseball game.
The moment your dad hands you the baseball is a memory that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
You quickly tuck your new prized possession safely in your glove and secretly believe you’re now one step closer to being a major league baseball player.
And then your older sister decides to crush all your hopes and dreams.
This is the traumatized face of a child who was just told he’s not getting a puppy, his Xbox is broken, and his family cancelled their trip to Disney World.
We hope that this will make him stronger.
