Another baseball season is upon us. Sebastian is in his 2nd year of minors in Little League. This is his first year as pitcher though. He has a very strong lefty throw. So strong that I make him ease up a bit when we play catch in the backyard. (Just to be clear, Mary is writing this, not Mike.) I never thought a 9 year could throw that hard. He has struck out a few kids already and shows great promise for the season. His fielding and batting has been great. He is quite a player. Look out MN Twins!
Here are a few photos I took during his pitching debut.
On a side note, I didn’t have much opportunity for game photos. Sophia and I were spectators while Mike was coaching. We thought it would be good to bring Daphne along since she had been home alone most of the day. What I didn’t realize is that boxers are kid magnets. I could have assembled my own T-Ball team will all of the little kids that wanted to pet her (and get licked by her). I made the same mistake last night too. If there are going to be any more game photos, Daphne is going to have to stay back at the house. Sorry Daphne!
