Last month Landon began his baseball career by playing t-ball. He was one of the youngest kids on his team but that did not seem to faze him one bit. His first game we were not sure if he would even participate or not but he followed his coach and teammates to the sideline until it was his turn to bat. The first time he hit the ball he just sort of stood there not quit sure what to do until the coach showed him where to run to first base. The next time he bat he remembered where to go and slowly walked to first base. Once he was on the base he usually needed someone to tell him when to advance to second, third or home. Towards the end of the short season he seemed to really be getting the hang of his offensive duties.
Playing in the outfield was another story, there seemed to be so many distractions. The first couple of times he did get the ball he would put it in his left hand with his mitt and try to throw it that way. It makes me giggle just thinking about it. Priceless!! We cannot wait to sign him up again.And of course there was a lot of nail biting going on.....a habit I wish he would quit. ;)
