Watch this youngster provide a reaction for the ages after his gives up a grand slam at the Little League World Series.

We we’ve all witnessed it. Those classic temper tantrums thrown by adults in a Major League Baseball uniform after something bad happens.
Relief pitchers especially, for if they come into a highly pressurized situation and blow the game for their team, a water cooler or two might receive the rough end of it in the dugout.
Conversely, lets not forget there’s another type of reaction warranted when the opposing players marvels us with their talent. The reaction that is admiration.
Check out Mekhi Garrard, a pitcher for the Midwest team in the 2015 Little League World Series.
Facing Cole Wagner, a lefty batter from the Mid-Atlantic squad, Gerrard gave up a monster shot that resulted in a grand slam. His reaction to the power display was priceless (see video above).
In the end Gerrard’s team lost by a count of 18-0, but it apparently didn’t phase the youngster. He decided to have fun.
