The tink of the bats

Yes. yes. YES! It is baseball season. And, I don't know that it could be much better than to see my baby in a Rangers uniform. Of course, the girl in me is thinking how fabulous he looks in that blue with his blue eyes. :) But, it is cool. How is THAT for ready position? That was him at first base. He had a 3U and a 6-3 put out that inning. Fielded every opportunity he had cleanly, no errors. He went three for three with three singles (one an infield hit that he legged out); three RBIs and two runs scored (he didn't get to run the bases on his third hit because he knocked in the fifth run and they have a 5-run rule in the first five innings).

videoHere is his single to center field. He seldom pulls the ball for whatever reason. Always up the middle or to the right. That's AoD telling him to run hard, by the way. :) He can turn on the speed when he needs to. His coach gave him big praise at the end of it for making the turn on the base path.

*bringing a tear to my eye* I love baseball.

    And, he's wearing Hank Blalock's number -- how cool is that?

    Enjoy, enjoy this time -- my boys are 21 and 18, long done with youth-league ball ... and I really miss those days.

    While at first he came within and inch or two of making a spectacular play.

    A hard liner was hit towards right and he quickly leapt for the ball. The ball passed only and inch or two over his glove...had he been using his newer and bigger glove he would have knocked the ball down and kept it in the infield at the least or made an awesome grab.
