Little Leaguer’s first All-Star homer makes father proud
Washington County Little League 7U All-Star and Brenham resident Ayden Cunningham (wearing No. 2) hit his first All-Star home run in exciting fashion in an 18-6 victory over Burleson County National in the District 13 Tournament on June 8.
Cunningham cruised around the bases for an inside-the-park homer as his father, David, watched from the stands. The elder Cunningham, who has often coached his young son, said being in the stands to soak in the moment was a blessing.
“As Ayden sprinted the bases I soaked in every single second of that moment because being in the stands was all new to me,” Cunningham said. “This was the first time ever I witnessed such a beautiful moment from the stands where I could actually celebrate the moment, and actually observe the reality of Ayden’s coach and teammates congratulating Ayden.”
