Fall Ball Starts

Walsh Park-LaGrange, KY:  Despite the fact that practices started in the summer, and, wait, I think technically it still is summer, but fall baseball has started at North Oldham Little League.  After a disappointed spring, I had to really convince Brian to play here in the fall.  Being this is his first experience with other kids pitching to him, I thought this was a very important step to prepare for next spring.

The Navy blue team, dubbed the Navy Seals, are 1-1 so far in the young season.  As one would expect, there was a lot of adjusting in the first couple of games, but really toward the end of the second game, the kids were getting used to being pitched to and hitting the ball.  Brian as well was a little hesitant at first, and looked to take a step back at just about every pitch.  Now he’s starting to hang in there and hit the ball, though. In the field, he’s been splitting time between left field and second base, but as also seen an inning at the hot corner.  With so many walked batters, there’s not a lot of action yet, but as the kids start hitting more the field will become more adventurous and more fun.  I think he’s liking second base, which is good, because that’s where his old man patrolled the field through Little League, high school, and into church softball.  Brian is also lucky to have some of the very best coaches this season in fall ball.  If he opens himself up and lets them help him, he has the potential to really improve.  Most of all, though, I hope he has fun and realizes how lucky he is to be able to put on a uniform and play baseball every week…
