Colin had his first baseball game today. On the way to the game, he told me that there are 3 important things to know about baseball:
1. The worst thing is being tagged out.
2. The best thing is hitting a home run.
3. There are always snacks at baseball.
Good to know he's got it all figured out.
Also, on the first pitch at his first at bat, he hit a grounder right into the outfield. It wasn't the first ball hit by the team or even the first ball to clear the infield. But I think people were surprised that so much power came out of him, given that he's the smallest one on the team. But hey - I was always the smallest one on the team, but I had gumption, determination and sheer power to make up for it all! The apple never falls far from the tree.
(No pictures or video - I was on my own there today and feeling pretty rotten and nauseous. But there is a whole summer of pictures and videos to capture, so I'm giving myself a break until this baby comes!)
