My 4 year old, Kevin, started t-ball last month. His first game was actually last weekend but I had to miss it because my 20 month old developed *another* ear infection and I was with her at the doctor’s office last weekend. So – today was the first game I was able to watch and photograph.
If you’ve never had the chance to watch 3 & 4 year olds play t-ball – it’s pretty amusing. When a ball is hit, they ALL run for it – I mean – 7-8 kids chasing ONE ball down – most of the time 2-3 kids land on the ball as if they were trying to recover a fumble in football.
Kevin did great! They each bat three times (they only play 3 innings) and each time he had a nice solid hit. He is learning more and more how to field the ball and developing the proper throwing techniques. He’s a long way from signing with the D-backs, but he’s having fun!
In the “ready” position…
That batting swing looks good to me!
