But, it doesn't make sense to not let him earn this loop and pin just because he's already an expert.
So, with just 90 minutes of practice and probably another 15 to 30 of demonstrating skills with you, he could earn the loop and pin. It doesn't need to be done during baseball season.
A better opportunity would be for him to find out which scouts in his den are not baseball experts and spend some time teaching and practicing with them. That way, he would gain experience and they would gain skills.
