After my last post about being fearful of this whole t-ball experience with my little boy, I decided that I will keep a log of our t-ball experience.
We have only had two practices so far. Here is how it went.
Day 1 Practice: Sam followed directions and participated the entire practice. Afterward, he asked Daddy if he would grill him a steak. It was already getting late, so we went out to eat instead. He ordered a rib-eye and mac and cheese. He ate over half of the steak and most of the mac and cheese. T-ball is creating quite the appetite in my little Thumper (his nickname, given him by Daddy).
Day 2 Practice: Today we bought him a new pair of baseball pants. They were so big around his little waist that they fell in a pool around his ankles when he tried to take a step. Daddy took him to Hibbet Sports to buy a belt. Problem solved. He was excited to wear the pants and his baseball socks to practice tonight. He enjoyed practice. He seemed to have made a couple of friends. He told me he liked hitting the ball the best. (One of the other parents suggested he try throwing with his left arm instead of the his right.) I am going to have to practice throwing with him to see what it was that she “saw”.
Next practice is Thursday night. I’ll keep you posted.
