T-Ball!

Will started t-ball in Micanopy a couple weeks ago. So far, he loves it. He still wants to play soccer, but we talked about soccer in the fall and baseball in the spring. Their team is the Braves and their uniforms are so cute! (I was recently corrected that baseball uniforms are not cute, but sharp looking.) We headed to Citra for an opening game at their new complex. I have to say I had complex envy. They had brand new fields and a dedicated t-ball field. I love our complex. It's homey and shady, but these were pretty awesome fields.

Will had a great time at the game. His practices are Monday and Friday night which works out well for us since it's only one school night then.   About half of his kindergarten class and half the VPK class from his school are on the team, so he knows almost everyone really well.  He's not the most athletic on the team (look at his parents) and my dad says he runs like me which could cause some teasing, but he did pay attention (mostly) and got to bat three times.  

Before the game, the kids had a great time playing on a field with actual grass.  Our field does not have any grass.  Here's Will with his best friend, Chance.  



They actually played the National Anthem at the t-ball game (we don't do that) and lined up to greet the other team.  They had fancy speakers for the field.  The little girl, Taylor, is in Will's class and is one of the best athletes on the team.  


They have 18 kids on their team (16 showed up for the game) and they put all on the field at the same time since it's t-ball.  Will played somewhere between 1st, 2nd, right field, and behind the pitcher.  There's no outfield in t-ball.  It's pretty funny with all of them on the field.  They've stopped letting the ball go by them and now all fight over getting the ball.  But, at least they stop the ball!


Getting ready to bat.



They have to hit it at least 15 feet or it's a "do-over."  Again, it's t-ball.  


Best part of the game - snack time!  He's too busy with his pudding to look at us.  But, look he's got his name on his shirt!
