Rounding second...


Okay, so the first teeball game is under Alden's belt. It's pretty exciting. He did well with just a little bit of nervous hesitancy. He had two good hits and fielded the ball really well, too.

I didn't really know the 'format' for a teeball game. As I've mentioned, it was our first, probably of hundreds. Anyway, they don't count outs, which admittedly was hard for my over-competitive nature to swallow at first, and there are only two innings. Each inning consists of every kid on the team batting once.

I see the gain that will come from this. Alden is already getting some instincts of what to do 'in the field'. It's exciting to watch, especially since he really, really enjoys the game... more than soccer.

Anyway, thought I'd let you know how it went and post a picture of Alden holding up at second.

As a lover of baseball and a brother of someone who started playing baseball at the T-ball level, I was really proud of Alden. The way that he kept his head in the game and fielded the ball was amazing. I could tell that this is Alden's sport and that he is only going to get better. I look forward to following his baseball career!

Alden looks like a pro! That is so fun. It reminds me of my little league start. Except I don't remember hitting the ball... Great job Alden!

After watching the boys hit the ball over and over again in the front yard, I knew he would be great. I am so excited to see him play in a game.
