T-Ball Tales Part 6

Aug 7, 2009
Well, T-Ball wrapped up last night.  It was supposed to be the kids vs. the parents, but the other Coach had some crazy idea that we would play each other and just have the parents bat after the kids.  The parents had to hit the opposite way and run backwards.  It was pretty funny.  I am happy to report that none of the parents, myself included, tripped while running the bases. 
Heath had a good time, hopefully next year he’ll be a little more focused.  It was good to see him interact with some of the other kids on the team, although for the most part he stuck with our neighbor, who is one of his best friends.

My brother, who works out of town a lot, was able to go to the game.  Seeing him reminded me of one of my Little League Tales.  There was a play at the plate where knocked the Catcher over making him drop the ball.  They called me out because you weren’t allowed to run the Catcher over.  My brother yelled at the ump that he was blocking the plate.

    Ryan, I also was reminded of your little league tales, I do remember the one you referred to and many others. You and Tom were very competitive then and still.

    You are a great coach and a great sports writer!!
