I took this photo Friday night just before the Little League parade. After the parade, his team was supposed to play one “inning.” An inning in which everyone played the field & everyone got at least one at bat. Z got a bit nervous & didn’t want to play. But, the coaches talked him into it. When he got up, he took a couple good swings. When he finally made contact, he pulled the ball way foul. But, the coaches were yelling for him to run the bases anyway. And, after some horrible throws, he made it all the way around for a “home run.”
He was all excited & spent the weekend telling people how he “hit a home run without any practice.”
Tonight is this little man’s first baseball game. I can’t attend. And, I hate that. But, I’m thinking of you, bud. And, I hope you love playing.
