Nine-year-old Rafael Gomez and his father Juan share a very special bond.
Coached by his father since he was just three years old, little Rafael's dream is to become a Major League Baseball player but he's already made it into Guinness World Records with the title for the Most baseball catches with alternating hands in one minute.
The pair can often be found practicing regularly in their hometown of Bogota, Colombia.
Both were determined to set the record, which meant hours of extra catching practice each day.
Rafael told his father he had desire to stand out, which is why he wanted to earn this record. He also wanted to inspire other children.
By the time Juan and Rafael were ready to try the for the title, they had been able to do 61 catches in 60 seconds standing 10 metres apart.
But the aspiring athlete made his father extra proud that day, when he achieved a new record-breaking total of 68 catches, far more than what they had aimed for.
Now the duo have future plans to attempt more baseball records, confident and excited from their latest attempt.
