North Haven HS (CT) provided a special “Jack Hoffman” moment for a seven year old fan named Anthony Longley during their “Spring Brawl” game.

The first time you watch it, just try to enjoy it from beginning to end, but the second time, keep an eye on the sideline and watch the whole thing unfold.

College programs doing this in front of thousands of fans is always nice to see, but there’s just something about seeing a moment like this play out in front of a few hundred fans of a close knit community that makes this really special. For Anthony, 40,000 screaming fans isn’t what he would have remembered anyway, it’s catching that pitch and scoring in the moment that he’ll cherish forever.
