T-Ball




We've all enjoyed going to Will's T-ball games on Thursday nights. These pics were from his first game a few weeks ago. It's amazing how much improvement we've seen in his skills since then! At this first game he was most concerned about kicking, playing, and looking at the dirt. He also ended up batting off the tee each time he was up to bat. But last night he got two hits, (and batted from the tee once) one of his hits he made to home, the other he got out at 2nd! It's fun to see him advancing as he learns the rules of the game - most of which are taught through trial and error! (He now knows you can overrun 1st, but not 2nd - two lessons learned the hard way.) He's such a good sport and just likes to have fun and be with the other kids, which is the way it should be! They are very team-spirited. We can often hear Will's voice from the bench yelling, "Let's go Cardinals, Let's go!!!" At this stage in Will's sports career, it's all about the drink and snack that you get afterwards. That is the real highlight!

It sounds like you had a perfect first year. It's cool to hear he is the "encourager" on the team.
