Look at Clayton! On the ready for any ground ball!! That's what any tough third baseman looks like--no matter what league you play in! Today's game was wonderful. Seeing all the kids out there smiling (most of them at least!), having a blast just being kids, accepted as they are. Clayton got a little nervous when the coach was putting on his jersey, but after that he warmed up quite well to his helper, Ms. Pam. I don't think she pushed him around the bases fast enough, but she was able to talk him into wearing his glove longer than I've ever seen him keep something on his left hand, so I say kudos to her!
We've been practicing hitting off a tee, but they didn't use a tee in the game. Guess we''ll have to do some more practicing with an actual pitcher! And here he is ready to run at the crack of the bat:
And just plain having fun:
I can't wait for next Saturday's game!
