What do coaches say when they go to the mound to talk to a struggling pitcher?
Now we know, at least in Little League.
At the Little League World Series, Isaiah Jensen, of Bend, Ore., got a visit from his coach who is also his father.
“Hey, I just came out to tell you how much I love you, as a dad and a player,” the old man said.
The Oregon team won the consolation game.
