Hot. Oh- did I say that again? Silly me… going to a “T-Ball” game today for the little one. Picture two teams of 5 and 6 year old kids standing in a hot, dry ball field at noon, with temperatures in the 90’s. They have a hard enough time concentrating on the game as it is! But as the old saying goes, “it builds character”. And really, the kids love it- they get snacks and juice drinks after the game too. And we usually go for ice cream afterwards… what’s not to love? And they even learn a little about baseball along the way! It’s a good experience, whether he chooses to continue with the game or not in future years. He can always say he played baseball as a kid! And it’s fun to watch as parents… here’s a couple pictures from the last game:
Batter’s Up! The young one concentrates on hitting the ball…
It’s a hit! He runs for first base while the other team scrambles for the ball.
