Last Saturday was the Opening Ceremony for our little league baseball.
It was so fun watching the boys play in their first games. It is a new experience for both of them this year. Carson is playing "coach pitch" meaning the coach pitches 7 pitches to them and they either hit or get out. Carson went 3 for 3 in his first game. Defense wasn't too shabby either!
Connor is participating in "player pitch". Which from the picture below...you can see he was the player pitching! He did a great job for his first game. Only hit one kid and you could tell he felt bad about it! Man, is this nerve racking for a parent, especially a mom that is super competitive! I try so hard to be quiet on the sidelines, but I constantly find myself blaring out instructions...("how many outs?", "where is your play?", "bend your legs!", "baseball ready")
Just trying to make them be at the top of their game! They do not always see it that way. I think they are just going to have to get used to it.
Davis' favorite part is the playground and the tire swing! He was just so excited that I found a pair of Carson's old cleats. He calls them his "practice shoes" He literally wears them to every practice and game. He cannot wait to play. I am not sure how we will do it all when he starts! There is 3 of them and only 2 of us.
This week we had a game or practice every night, but Monday! It is crazy busy, but I am just so thankful that they are healthy enough to play and that they have so much fun doing it!
Gotta go...have a couple of dirty uniforms to wash. Why do they even make white pants?! I mean really...couldn't they just have all boys were black pants regardless of the shirt color? My boys have to slide at least once a game!
