This is Minnesota high schooler Dan O’Reilly. He’s here to teach you a lesson about perserverence. 

O’Reilly hit a foul ball that bounced up and hit him in the crotch. It looked very painful.

But he didn’t stay down for long.

There’s a life lesson to be learned here, O’Reilly says. 

We should all be as tough as this kid.
