It's time for a little off-season surgery.
You might remember my son breaking his leg in a Little League game back in April. Well, right about now, they should be wheeling him back for surgery to remove the four screws they used to put his tibia back together. The break was right at the growth plate and the screws have to be removed so they won't inhibit his growth.
If you're the praying sort, send one up for him today. The doctor feels like the leg is completely healed and that's a good sign. Three or four days in a walking boot and six weeks for the holes in the bone to fill in and he should be better than ever.
