When you play, I will always . . .
When you peak over at me from first base after cranking one to center field, I will always give you my quiet fist pump.
When you look at me with disappointment from the dugout after striking out—I will always mouth, “Keep your head up.”
When I see you dismiss something a coach says to you, you will always get that look from me that reminds you about our Family Rule #1 about playing sports.
When I see you doing your signature hip-shake dance at 2nd base in between innings, I will always smile knowing no one can suppress your entertaining personality.
When you are cheering on your teammates from the dugout, I will always make a mental note to praise you for it after the game.
When you win, when you lose, when you succeed, when you make mistakes, when you have a tough day, when you play your best game . . .
I will always be your biggest cheerleader.
