Gavin Ulin, 12, threw the final pitch and finished off a remarkable run for the kids from Taylor. Gavin Ulin and his mother just returned back home from Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
“I wasn’t thinking. My legs were shaking. I wasn’t thinking. It was baseball at that point,” Gavin Ulin said.
There were around 3 million people watching the game on TV. Gavin Ulin’s father, Guido Ulin, was in the dugout as a bench coach.
“I told him I love him, be confident in what he knows. We train. We put a lot of time, invest a lot of time, always have, always will,” Guido Ulin said.
