Swing and a hit!
Another first in our house this week, tball. We had our first game as a Yankee! To be honest, I have been stressed out about how this tball thing would pan out. I was worried about my baby boy's feelings when he got out, missed a pop fly, or didn't know which way to run. I know that we all go through these life lessons, but I am learning it is so much harder on the Mommy side of things. I think I feel the hurt just as much as he does.
Luke's first practice went well. We couldn't be more thrilled with his coaches. They are so patient with all the players, especially those that are new to the game. Luke had a great time and couldn't wait to get his uniform and play in a real game.
We showed up on Wednesday night decked out in our new hat, pants, shirt, cleats, and socks. He even got a new glove and bat for the first game. I breathed a HUGE sigh of relief when I found out:
1) They play three innings
2) They don't keep score
3) They don't track outs
4) Everyone gets to field
5) Everyone gets to bat and run the bases
Whew! All that silly stress for nothing. Watching all the little 4,5, and 6 year olds play ball was such a blast. Luke LOVED every minute of the game. He said his favorite part is hitting and running to first base. He did an awesome job and I couldn't be more proud of my little Yankee.
