Look at these young minors baseball players finishing the season and their first full experience of a player actually pitching.

The boys have come a long way since T-ball, and coach pitch, and have finally entered the world where they can do everything themselves on the field.

Scary isn’t it? They grow up so fast.

The Blue Jays defeated the Rangers by the score of 15-2 on Thursday, June 7, improving their record to 6-8 on the season.

It was the last game of the season for both clubs.

“The kids were being very aggressive today. They were making their throws, and we had good pitching,” Blue Jays Manager Eric Sadler said.

Starting pitcher Jerzy Gould and the defense behind him set the tone early for the Blue Jays as they didn’t allow a runner to reach base and put a zero on the scoreboard in the top of the first inning.

For the game, Gould pitched a complete game, allowing only one hit as he walked two and struck out six.

“That was one of the best games I’ve ever pitched,” Gould said.

As for the Blue Jays offense, the boys weren’t interested in putting any zeros on the board.

They scored four runs in each of the first three innings and tallied three runs in the bottom of the fourth to seal the deal.

One of the top standouts for the Blue Jays was 9-year-old Wyatt Stevenson. He was 2-2 with two runs scored and four runs batted in.

“I think it was pretty cool to do that well,” Stevenson said.

Also, Jesus Delgado did his best impression of New York Mets first baseman Carlos Delgado, as he played long ball by going 2-2 with a home run and three runs batted in. He also scored two runs.
