We gave Jacob and Luke the choice to play baseball or soccer. They both chose baseball. Jacob is on the Cubs team and Luke is on the Reds team. They had a great opening ceremony for the kids before the first games were played. Complete with activities, team introductions and even a fly-by.
This is Luke's first team sport and it is a hoot to say the least. A team of all four year olds who have never played before makes for some interesting practices and games. The games are very typical...kids playing in the dirt, watching the ball roll past them, not knowing where to throw the ball...oh it makes me laugh.
|His first time up to bat.|
|Run Lukie Run!|
|He has played the catcher position several times. He's not too sure what to think about this one.|
|Good game, sweet Luke!|
Jacob is playing in the beginning coach pitch level again this year. To play in the advanced coach pitch you have to "try out" and be placed according to skills. We thought we would give him one more year to practice his skills and then move him up next year. He has a great coach this year and Jim is the assistant coach and has been enjoying helping out.
|Jacob is on the left- looks like such a big boy out there.|
|Jacob has been doing great at bat. He has hit many singles and several doubles and he is very proud of that!|
