Let the Games Begin

Brad is helping coach a 5- and 6-year-old little league baseball team this season. It's Coach-Pitch, and he's the coach that pitches. He pitches until they hit a ball. If they keep missing after a whole lot, they'll bring the tee out and let them bat off of that.

But, most of the kids actually aren't that bad. Some of them are hitting it all the way to the fence! (Well, it's rolling to the fence, not soaring. And the fact that they don't know how to field a ball yet helps with the home runs...)

It's so cute to watch these miniature little guys running all over the field trying to figure out what to do. Every time the ball is hit, the entire defensive team runs for the ball. They don't keep score, so even if somebody gets out, they just keep on running the bases. Since they don't keep track of outs and scores, each player gets the chance to bat every inning.

You should see the faces of those little guys every time they make contact with the ball, whether with a bat or glove. It's priceless.

Speaking of priceless - Look at the team making their "silly faces."

Brad's going to be such a great dad. Watching him interact with those young 'uns makes me fall more and more in love with him.
