Today I attended my first T-Ball game. It was my nephew's (Grant) game. When I heard that Grant was on the Mapleton Braves T-Ball team, I just had to see him play. After all softball has always held a special place in my heart. It was the first sport I played. He told me about it and was so excited about it... so after work I drove to my parents house and my mom and I drove to the park to watch the game.
I have to say that it was cutest/ funniest game to watch. The coaches have to have a lot of patience with these kids. Considering the attention span of a 4 year old... I was impressed that they could get them all to stand (in position) where they were supposed to be. Grant was great. He hit the ball and ran the bases (his run cracks me up) and stood out in the field really for the ball like a champ.
They played for about an hour. In T-Ball nobody ever gets out, everyone get's to run bases and everyone is a winner. It's cute to see the kids get excited over the game.... when they are not distracted by the other players, or something else. Obviously... this game is to teach kids how to follow rules, how to be part of a team and teach them how the game works. I think it is so great. I'm so glad that I got to go and cheer Grant on.
My cute nephew Grant. Isn't he a stud? I love their little uniforms.
