First Baseball Game of the Season
Today was the first baseball game of the season! It was a beautiful day (and I have the sunburn to show for it!) Tucker is on the Oakdale Fire team, which coincidentally one of the coaches works for.
Today was all about trying a little bit of everything and letting the boys get a feel for the game. The first two innings we just go through the roster once with no outs. The next four innings is played like a "real" game. tucker played third base a few times as well as first, where he did really good. He made a lot of really great plays and got a few runners out!
The coaches take turns pitching to the kids and they all did a great job of hitting the ball-some pretty far! I'm loving the sound the bat makes when it connects with the ball!
After the game, the boys line up and give high-fives to the other team
The boys got a final peptalk and enjoyed snack and juice!
GO OAKDALE FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
