Tee Ball

Sport learned to bat on something bigger than a baseball...
I've hardly had time to sit at my computer today! We had our first tee ball games and both teams did very well. My sweetie aka the awesome-ist guy in the world, is coaching Curly's team and I'm coaching Scout's. Sadly, most of our games overlap so I won't get to watch very many of Curly's and my sweetie will miss most of Scout's.

I have to confess that I was dreading it a little, but it really wasn't all that bad. Instead of pitching to the kids, I had them all hit off the tee today and so did the other coach. Because the game moved fast, we didn't have anyone just picking grass.

We played three innings with the inning ending after the last kid gets the chance to hit. Our league doesn't count balls or strikes or even outs! Even if they get out, they run all the bases and the last kid up gets to hit a home-run.

Scout made some awesome hits, but the most impressive thing she did was when she was playing first base. The ball came off the tee as a slow grounder, right to her. She fielded the ball like a pro and tagged her base. She made the one and only out for the game!

Burrito was pretty unhappy about being assigned short stop in the last inning. He was inconsolable, and not even the threat of losing his treat was enough to bring him around. I'm hoping Teach won't have to work next time so she can take some pictures for you. Curly is so cute in his game shirt and hat! I've never been able to understand why the county leagues can't figure out that very few three-year-olds can wear a size 6 - 8.

I know what you mean on the sizing issues for shirts for kids sports. The Y I work at has soccer for 3/4 year olds and you would think by now they would order shirts and socks that actually fit these kids rather than the 6/7 year olds.

Goodness,I didn't know they had teams for the really young ones. I guess it is never too early to teach kids that moving is much more fun than sitting.

No grass picking? That's too cute! I love that everyone runs the bases and that nobody is singled out for a bad play. It's all about pumping them up and helping build confidence. Yay!
