Play Ball!

Hello, proud father Coach Rob here to tell you about the debut of the Carmel T-ball Association Giants, who played the Angels on Saturday. In fact, the Giants will play the Angels in EVERY game, as there are only two teams in the league. Anyway I wanted you to see The Son's great debut, as he had two hits, an RBI, and two runs scored. That said, in the interest of full disclosure, EVERY child had two hits (both singles) and at least one RBI with two runs scored, and there was no winning or losing team.

We organized the players by uniform number for their first time up. The Son is number 10, and is busy working on manicuring the field. But enough about that - let's have a look at his first career at bat. Note the fluid swing, the power behind the contact, and the way he flies down the line.

Just to make sure I've bored you enough, have a look at his second at bat. I wish you could see the whole thing on this video because what happened was classic. As he went to hit, suddenly the parents figured out what his name was and began to cheer for him. He approached home plate, heard the commotion, and turned around with a huge smile on his face. I couldn't help but ask him if he wanted to tip his helmet to the crowd. You had to be there to understand how funny it was.

He seems to be enjoying himself, and that's what I want him to do. So long as he's having fun, getting active, and learning, I'm pleased. It was a nice start.

Now remember Sean - Bonds is the bad man and "flaxseed oil" and "the cream" are no good for you! ;p
