He is about fifteen years young. Hutch usually plays shortstop but hes trying out for a new team and they already have one named daryl and is projected to go pro. Hutch didn't think he would have chance in beating daryl for the position so he tried out for 2nd base. Hutch successfully made the team and got a new starting position at second base. Hutches father played baseball when he was a kid and wanted to play professional baseball but one day he finally realized he was never going to be good enough to play professional ball. In that case a gave up on baseball and never wanted a thing to do with it. The problem is all hutch ever wanted was to have his dad support him and go to all his games which he never did.
