This Little Leaguer who takes 'big daddy hacks' has stolen our hearts

Richie Gilboy is a good sweet boy who is playing in the Little League World Series, yet he is aware of his weaknesses as a player:

There’s a beautiful level of self-awareness to Gilboy’s game. Most kids want to talk up their strengths or puff out their chests before the game, but he knows he likes to take “big daddy hacks” and isn’t afraid to tell the world.

This is how good players become great. Bless you, Richie Gilboy, our sweet perfect baseball boy. Keep swinging for the fences, not just in baseball but in life.
