I Got It

Before heading inside for dinner, Richard Wilz of Jasper helped his sons, Reece, 5, and Bryce, 7, and nephew Ripken Ramsey of Dubois, 5, practice baseball Monday evening in Jasper. Bryce, left, and his cousin, Ripken, practiced catching pop flies. “If you would move, I could catch a ball,” Ripken said to Bryce after missing a ball. This weekend, Bryce is competing in an all-star game in Paoli.

 

Richard prepared to load the pitching machine for Bryce while Ripken played catcher. "I was off today and I wanted to spend time with them," Richard said.

 

Richard helped Reece put on gloves before hitting some balls with a pitching machine.
