Danya Undefeated in Two Simuls
In addition to throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at a baseball game, World U12 Champion FM Danya Naroditsky recently gave a pair of simultaneous exhibitions. One occurred prior to the baseball game in the Oakland A's clubhouse, when Danya faced pitchers Andrew Brown and Huston Street repeatedly, beating both about a half dozen times within 30 minutes. The second simul (see photos below) was a fundraiser at the prestigious Crystal Springs Uplands School in Hillsborough, which both Danya and his older brother Alan attend. Danya won all 16 games without difficulty. Thanks to blog readers and proud parents Vladimir Naroditsky and Carl Moy for sending these photos to me.
