My first impression with the HitAWay PTS by Sklz Baseball was basically complete surprise.
I'm a pretty savvy consumer and I had checked out the HitAWay PTS on the website videos and even at the local Sports Authority store before I had a chance to do this blog review, and I thought I had a pretty good idea about this training device.
However after helping Seamus lift the box into the house and unpacking the box, I was nearly shocked to learn that the HitAWay PTS is actually a rather heavy-duty piece of training equipment. It is amazingly solid, with a very steady platform and very solid construction.
PTS stands for "portable training station" and with its folding action the HitAWay PTS is also easily portable. It won't fit in a backpack, but between the bat bag, the ball bucket and the bag with catcher's gear, my car trunk has a lot of gear in it already on game day or on the way to baseball practice.
Adding the HitAWay PTS isn't any trouble at all, and I plan to bring it along to all of the team practices and games.
(To be continued.)

Seamus Endorses the Hit A Way Portable Training Station
The Hit Away PTS is a great training system. Anyone can use it in many different ways like high, low, inside and outside.
The Hit A Way PTS can be used indoors and out doors if you have a big enough space.
The Hit A Way PTS looks like a long metal pole with two strings attached to a ball.
The Hit A Way PTS is great because you can keep hitting and hitting.
SEND YOUR CLIPS TO email@example.com. Each week, we'll pick one highlight as the Rawlings Kid Baseball Clip of the Week.

The Tooth Ball
One day in 2007 I had my first loose tooth. My sister was in the Arlington town league AA and she was on the Astros. I was too young to be in AA so I was on a tee-ball team called the hooks. My Dad and I went to my sister’s game to watch.
At the game we decided to play catch as we were watching the game. Dad made a perfect throw to me but it missed my glove and it hit my mouth right on my loose tooth. I reached inside my mouth and grabbed my tooth .
Usually I would be happy that I lost my first tooth but it was painful this time. Later in the day we went home and put the tooth in a ziplock bag, and later I got a mini-treasure box from the dentist for a tooth.
To this day we keep the “Tooth” ball and the treasure box with my tooth in it in a plastic box on the shelf.

Seamus(age 8) of Arlington, Massachusetts
Last weekend my family and I went to the homeless shelter called The Pine Street Inn (http://www.pinestreetinn.org/) in Boston to make a difference in someone’s life.
We decided to donate some of our time to people less fortunate than ourselves. It was not very hard at all. It was actually quite fun! Sometime you might be able to help them out too.
We went to do a special Christmas program called family gift wrapping. We got to wrap gifts that companies had donated to the Pine Street Inn. Another thing we did was make cards for the guests staying there. Those were probably the only gifts and cards they are going to get all Christmas. Imagine only getting one present all Christmas. It would not feel very good.
In the time we were there I made four Christmas cards, and my sister Hannah made four cards. We made them from paper, glue and decorations. My Dad made only two cards because he was making them very carefully. My Step-Mom Julia made five cards, and she helped the rest of us make our cards more pretty. Julia is good at making Christmas cards.
There are many ways you can help the Pine Street Inn. You can make a financial donation in any amount by mail or online. Maybe have a company sponsor a drive for food or new clothing. If you want to do something with your whole family volunteering with your family is a great way to spend time together, engage in meaningful activity and have fun.

Seamus’ Baseball Cap Collection
When I was little I always tried to make a collection, and I always had the craziest ideas such as a “website” collection or a “Made in China” collection. None of these ideas worked well.
Then the idea came to me – I could start a baseball cap collection! It made perfect sense because I already had tons of caps. Now I have at least 23 baseball caps.
I have baseball caps that are from college baseball teams, such as the Rice University Owls and the University of North Carolina Tar Heels. I have caps from major league teams such as the Boston Red Sox and the Pittsburgh Pirates, and I have minor league baseball hats such as the Savannah Sand Gnats and the Corpus Cristi Hooks. I got the minor league hats from the teams I played on in tee ball.
I have so many hats hanging over my bed that every day it takes about ten minutes to decide what to wear every day. I have a goal to collect at least 50 hats, and to get a wide variety of baseball caps.
On the internet my dad helped me find an article about the World’s Largest Baseball Cap collection. Roger "Buckey" Legried had almost 83,000 caps in 2006.
