Caveman's perfect recall

It's now hockey time for the Caveman, and the teams have been selected. He has been assigned to a team in the Atom (U10) house league.

At his first practice, his hockey coach said to me something along the lines of “Jeez, I was impressed when I saw your son this spring. Caveman can sure throw a softball - I don’t know if I could hit his pitches!”

Caveman was of course pleased to hear this. I asked him afterward: "Do you remember playing against Coach's son in softball this year?" (I must have missed the game coaching Fitzroy Junior's team because I don’t remember seeing him play this kid.)

Caveman: “Oh yeah Dad, I remember. Struck him out on five pitches.”

Me: “C’mon, as if you remember how many pitches!”

Caveman: “It’s true. Strike, strike, ball, ball, strike three. You don’t have to believe me but that’s what I did.”

So, either the Caveman has a photographic memory for softball, has a great imagination or is completely insane....or all three.
