    Wow - what is that?! Looks like a huge water feature, a swimming pool and a hot tub all rolled into one!

    That back yard is an adult Disneyland , believe me. The only pool I ever saw that has a remote control for all the features, My friend has only moved in his house for 3 to 4 days and the learning curve is huge because of al the high tech.
    They are a great family, and he has been working with Conner on pitching and hitting. The 3 months off due to Covid 19 has not been good for kids they all gained weight and there skills became rusty.
    They get out of breath fast, an athlete can't take 3 months off and come right back. There batting speeds are down ,pitching speeds down it stinks.
