Baseball season is in full swing here and I love being a baseball mama. Emerson plays for the Giants in the 7-8 division (coach pitch) and Hayden plays for the Marlins in the 9-10 division (kid pitch). Both teams are doing fabulous. E's team is 7-1 and H's is 8-0. This post is for Emerson but I will post one about Hayden next.
E started off rather slow thanks to never having played real baseball. He played tee ball 2 years ago in a joke of a league back in Colorado but he gained nothing from that experience. Clayton has never thrown a ball at him so he was clueless when the practices started back in March. It took him a while, but now he can hit the ball and catch it. He made doubles in the past two games and helped bring in several runners. He's scored a couple of runs himself too. I am so proud! Last weekend, he earned the game ball by helping lead his team to victory. I fortunately had my camera with me (it was the first time I took it with me to the ball fields) so I was able to capture his sweet moment.
