A few months ago we got an email from the coach of the basketball team Mack was on last winter. He was trying to pull together a baseball team for the spring. At the time, Mack wasn't involved in any other activities and since he had had such a great experience with basketball, we thought it would be great to have him associated once again with this group of boys and coaches. So, we signed him up!
Let me just mention that baseball, even for little boys, is a significant investment. After registration, uniforms, equipment, and sliders! we have determined that Mack will be playing baseball for the next several years (or at least until he grows out of all that stuff) so that we can get our money's worth out of this.
Other than a few surprising experiences with baseball underwear, though, this whole baseball experience has been awesome. Last week we had a practice, and two games within three days. By the last game of the weekend, the boys were really starting to gel as a team and feeling much more confident. They won their first game of the season and they were thrilled. We are so grateful to have these amazing opportunities that our kids can be involved in, awesome dad/coaches who volunteer countless hours of their time, and supportive parents who show up to all the games and take pictures that they share! I love this place!
