Shoemakers coach Keith Brown and batter Jacob Hurrell watch the new pitcher as he warms up during an AAU baseball game against Medfield at Riverside Park in Haverhill on April 21. Photographers Take: This image sums what youth baseball is all about: learning. I love how the coach is talking to Jacob and Jacob is intent on taking it all in. He's about to face a new pitcher and appears a little apprehensive, but the coach's body language communicates confidence that Jacob can get the hit.
