After another long weekend of baseball, we have come to the end of an era of one. As a family we are now done with T-ball. Chase finished up his T-ball tenure with a line drive down third. It was such a happy yet sad moment. Happy to see Chase play a great game and have fun doing it and sad because that means he’s getting older and moments we can never get back. Continue reading
Yea,..it was a playing in the dirt kind of day. Chase had a game today that was going well, but for five and six year olds, if there’s not much action the kids lose focus pretty fast. It’s like a band of celebrity divas that need five to six handlers to keep them on schedule. Continue reading
Today we moved from T-ball to coach pitch games, which made our long games even longer. Again, I forgot to put sunscreen on, so I’m getting a pretty sexy baseball tan (mostly a burn).
The kids seemed excited to try and hit from pitches vs. off the tee. A few of the kids actually hit from the pitches but after three pitches if the kids didn’t hit from the pitch they still had a chance to hit from the tee. In the field, you can see quite a different range of kids:
1) The kid that plays in the dirt or picks flowers or just lays down.
2) The kid that stands in the field and just watches the ball go by.
3) The kid that wants to play so badly he’s running to every position in the field.
4) And finally, the kid that is really good at catching the ball and has an idea where the play is happening.
Chase probably falls somewhere between three and four. He actually was pretty active out in the field today which was great to see that he’s progressing. Still a fun day at the field.
I guess playing baseball is not enough for Carter, now he is already expanding his baseball resume by helping his Dad and coaching third base for Chase’s T-ball team. Continue reading
