So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Barry Bonds in training?

Hot Rod is hitting the 'roids. We figure it is early, but anything worth doing is worth cheating at. Right?

WRONG!

Nope, Hot Rod is hitting the steroids to hopefully FINALLY knock out his cough. It has been there for about two months this time around. After chest xrays Wednesday, we ruled out pneumonia. Doc says it is inflamed para bronchial something. *shrug* He gave him some steroids and said to finish the antibiotic. Hopefully, we'll see some relief soon. Poor little guy.

But, his baseball skills are improving even before the steroids. ;)

My boys are so darn cute.

I love the kick. I always did that when I batted.

There was much debate in our dugout as to whether this was a girl or a boy. The moms all voted girl. I thought it was a boy. Army of Dad said it is definitely a boy. Whatever gender, he was the best player on their team.

These boys are like peas and carrots when it comes to baseball. Very cute. My boy scooping up a grounder.

I really liked this view of the whole field. The boy clobbered the ball on this at bat.

Army of Dad calls that back foot move "squishing the bug." Cracks me up, but it works great for kids to keep their foot on the ground. I love this shot because you see the ball coming off his bat.

He made sure he got that foot on first for the out.

He hangs that tongue out of his mouth when he's concentrating, I've noticed.

He's safe! Not only is he a standout on the field, but he got the math award in his class today. That's my boy, hitting the roids and everything.

    He has really good form, especially for a first time player.

    I can tell from the pics that he has been listening at practice and working on using the coaching points I tell the team (look at him fielding the grounder, "bend your knees and get your butt down").

    That's our boy. Now we need to work on the coach pitch.
