The Tolman Adventures in T-Ball!
Since Adam has recently turned 5, we have decided to put him in summer city t-ball. He has been so excited for it. For his birthday in May we got him all the gear that he needs to play. A mitt and ball basically. Then we recently got him a tee and a new bat that is just his size. Well his first game was on this past Thursday. They have a half hour practice and then a half hour game. It is the perfect length of time. Well soon after he started playing, we realized we have a bit of a ball hog on our hands! Every time the other team hit the ball, no matter how far away Adam was from it, somehow he always ended up with it. Not that he really knew what to do with it once he got it, but he had it nonetheless. But when he got up to bat was when he became the real crowd pleaser! First, he is the only lefty on the team, so people seemed to like that. Second, when he gets to the plate, he hits hit bat on the plate a couple times, just like the pros do, with a super serious look on his face. Then, while running the bases, he would slide into home plate every time! It was so funny. I couldn't stop laughing and he was having so much fun! I hope he never grows out of these stages because he is just so awesome!
