A Much Better Day for Baseball

Today J-man had another game. This one was actually enjoyable. It was a little cold out, but there was no rain and the field was dry. What a concept. The game itself had it's ups and downs. J-man was the first batter and had 2 hits - technically one single and one sort of "Bad News Bears" play by the other team, but we are not picky and will take a base when we can! The down part came in when he sort of took a pitch (from a machine that the coach loads) in his thigh. The coach was trying to make a slight adjustment and well - whoops - that is going to be a good bruise tomorrow. We walked it off a little bit and then went right back up there to get our second hit. We're tough. Okay so both of us were crying, but he was in pain and I can't stand to see my baby in pain.
The only balls he fielded today were in warm ups, because nobody hit it out to left field today. J-man was a lonely fielder out there today, doing some arm spins and squats, I would assume that was to stay warm. Or awake. Anyway, it was very entertaining for me. T-man was with us, but luckily there was a playground nearby, so we pretty much didn't see him the whole time. I mean - um - I was watching him play on the playground the whole time.
Mitch helped behind the plate, and while he enjoyed helping the kids set up to bat, he maybe wasn't all that PREPARED for that job. Meaning - well he decided that maybe he should wear a cup to the next game. I suggested that he volunteer to be a base coach instead, it looked way safer to me.
We have an exciting Saturday coming up - Tee-ball!! What could be more fun than J-man playing baseball? T-man playing tee-ball. Oh Yeah. Your gonna wish you had season tickets like I do. Don't worry, I'll take lots of pictures so that nobody misses anything! And just in case you were disappointed that J-man won't be playing on Saturday - He is! Yep, at 2 different fields 3 hours apart. Oh yeah and we gotta squeeze in team pictures at some point too, at yet a different field. Whole day - baseball. I did hear a rumor that it might not rain on Saturday, so it might not be so bad after all........
