Simple Things Sunday: First T-ball Game

I tried to sign my son up for soccer this spring, only to find out he’s still about 6 months too young. So, I didn’t even think about signing him up for baseball until I talked to the mother of one of his preschool classmates, who said they could play T-ball at 4 years old. We had missed the deadline to sign up for the team,  but I contacted the league and the coach and they were more than happy to let D join the team!

Since we were late joining, he missed the first couple of practices and his first taste of the sport was an actual game. Well, as much as a game as it is with a bunch of 4- and 5-year-olds! There is a lot of silliness and playing in the dirt, and the coaches are constantly trying to regain the attention of the kids. But that’s to be expected. The point is to get them out there catching and throwing, hitting the ball, and running the bases. We’ve had two more practices since the first game and so far, he’s really enjoying it!

  2. Nice to see he is interacting with sports and other kids, he will remember it the rest of his life.

  3. I like the photo, I like how you’ve focussed on just your son and his enjoyment and nothing else. Such a great memory!

    Games will get better each time–It should give him an oportunity to make new friends and sports skills–wait until he hits his first home run he will be bubbling with joy and so will all of us.

  5. I love that! What a great photo, and great job Mama on enjoying this time in your son’s life! Can’t wait to have these kind of moments when my baby is older! xoxo

    • Yes, I think a whole new world is opening up to us here. I suppose if he really takes to it, it could be going like this for the next 20 years! Enjoy your little one! I’m still trying to soak up the last of babyhood with my daughter, who will be two in a few months. 🙂
