What a difference a year can make! Micah played t-ball both fall and spring of the previous year but we skipped playing fall baseball last fall because while he would start the game interested, by the time he wasn't first to get the ball a few times when it was their turn in the field, he would lose interest and start pouting.
The pitcher spot did happen to be where Micah got to play first in their very first game so he started the season on a major high with getting to field lots of balls in his first inning!
Batting is a learning process. They each get 6 pitches and if they don't get a hit, they can choose the tee or the coach gives them a choice of one more pitch but if they miss they are out. Most usually choose the tee when it gets to that point. Micah's gotten a couple hits but usually uses the tee still.
And he scores! They are supposed to play by the rules of actually getting out but most of the other coaches are parents and all don't want to play by that and the kids are still learning as far as fielding the ball and throwing it to first so everyone usually scores.
Of course Dad also had to teach him his own favorite part of baseball - sunflower seeds. Which Micah called Dad over for some between innings.
I just love a dugout full of little baseball players. I hope Micah will continue to like baseball because I enjoy watching baseball a lot more than basketball. We are also trying out summer swim league this summer too. Micah hasn't decided what he likes best yet so we'll continue switching around until he settles on something he is passionate about like Abby who loves her gymnastics!
