Little League begins for the Boys
Battling the constant unpredictable weather, the 2012 Little League season is finally under way. We’ve started with some indoor clinics before we get the teams set and play outside in a week or two. Brian is just four, and will be tackling t-ball for the first time. The first year kids only play once a week and we’re just getting them to have fun with the sport and learn some of the basics. Trevor is trying to get back in the swing of things after taking a year off to play soccer. He’s excited to be playing baseball again, though, and we’ve invested in some of the catcher’s tools for him to be behind the dish. The last time he played he was seven, and in a coach-pitch league. This year as a nine-year-old he’ll have to adjust to having his peers throwing at him. He’s developed a pretty good swing, though, so I’m not too worried about him at the plate. This should be a really fun season, as I plan on managing Brian’s team and being an assistant for Trevor’s. Lily starts her girls softball league at the first of next month, too, so it looks like we’ll be spending plenty of time at the ball fields!
Not much of a Tigers fan, but I enjoy your writing, keep it up!
Thanks, Brendan. You don’t have to be a Tigers fan, here, just enjoy some Minor League stuff. I’ll be covering some different teams in a couple of weeks on my trip.
Love the pics, especially the one of Brian. He looks soooo excited! I hope all the kids and dad enjoy the season. It sounds like a great one in the making. And my compliments to Trevor on his latest cap of choice! Best. Ballcap. Ever. 😉
Kristen-he is pretty ecxited, and so is Trevor. He pulled that hat out of the archives, I guess. If they’re happy, I’m happy!
