We took the kids to see a baseball game played by our 
local amateur team. We watched how many 
MPH (miles per hour) the pitch was on the screen and tried
 to figure out which pitches the hitters would swing at most. 
Our son soon realized that unless they swing the bat at the ball, 
there's no chance of hitting it at all. Yes, they may miss a 
few times, but after some practice and warming up, 
they have a better chance of making contact with it. 

What do you want to take a swing at doing? 
Whatever it is, go for it! Because you never know unless you try!
