Caveman at the ISC Worlds

Sunday and Monday, the Caveman and I were in southern Ontario so we took the opportunity to drop in to watch some of the International Softball Congress World Tournament in Kitchener.

It was great ball to watch, and lots of fun to run into former teammates and opponents from across North America.

On Monday afternoon, we were watching a game featuring the Rio Grande Senators from Texas on the main diamond. The Caveman says to me "This guy pitched for Mexico when we went to the PanAm Games."

I'm sceptical, "How do you know that?"

"I remember him", he says. "He's gained some weight but I remember the way he pitches and makes that noise."

I look him up online. Sure enough, he is correct it's Samuel Villalvazo, who threw at the PanAms in Toronto in 2015. Three years ago (when he was ten) he saw the guy throw at one event, and he recognizes and identifies him at the Worlds.
