T-Ball Begins Anew

I am serving as an assistant coach for Jackson's T-Ball team again this year. Last night was the first practice and my first opportunity to meet the team and the many new players.

The core of the team are two returnees, Jax (of course) and Jack. It was good to be on the baseball field with youthful talent (4-6 year olds) excited about playing baseball and learning the game.

And the parents were there too, watching their sons (we have no girls on the team so far) learn the game.

This age group of kids has an attention span of about 30 seconds. I think of them much like Dory in Finding Nemo

But they are fun and eager to please.

The field was soggy, but we were shagging baseballs and talking baseball! Jax had a great night batting and also throwing strikes to me from first base.

Playball!
