His first practice went well! The coaches started off by helping the kids get familiar with pretending to swing a bat at an imaginary ball, and running from base to base to understand how first, second, third, and home base work.
After doing that a few times they broke up into two smaller groups to practice catching the ball in their mitts and throwing it back to the coach. Connor caught the ball once or twice in his mitt and has a dang good arm on him!
At the end of their first practice, each of the players got their very own team t-shirt and baseball hat. So stinkin' cute!
The next week, they got to actually practice hitting the balls. Connor did pretty well for his first time!
He REALLY enjoys T-Ball, and we already know how good he is at soccer, so it seems like those two things are going to be "his thing." Both are very good for him actively and if he sticks with these sports through high school and even beyond, both can be beneficial to him through college and adulthood, so I will support that as long as he wants to continue them! I am so proud of the big man my oldest baby is turning into!
