Jaydin Goldenstein is a high school baseball player for Holyoke, located here in Colorado. On April 29th, Jaydin and his Holyoke squad had a doubleheader against Wray High School, and needed to win both games of a doubleheader to win the Lower Platte League title.
In game one, Jaydin was the starting pitcher for Holyoke, and threw a no-hitter.
In game two, Jaydin hit four home runs.
And as you would assume with such sensational efforts, Holyoke would win both games and get the league title they coveted.
But what made his accomplishments stunning to a level beyond explanation, was that just two days before this day on the baseball diamond, he sat bedside as his 35-year-old mother, Leah Bennett, passed away.
I can't even imagine how it's possible as a high school kid to play baseball two days after your mother's death, and to perform like Jaydin did? "Amazing" is an understatement.
