Saturday was opening day for Michael's baseball season. They had individual and team pictures, followed by a short scrimmage. They were the last game of the day on the field so they were able to play an additional inning for practice. This year, he is playing coaches' pitch. They are given 3 chances to hit the ball as it is pitched to them and then they hit it off the tee. Michael was able to hit the ball that was pitched to him both times he was at bat. I think he really enjoyed himself.
Todd is an assistant coach this year so he was in the pictures and out on the field with Michael. Michael fielded at first base and Todd was the first base coach. I loved watching the two of them out on the field together. Katie watched some of the game but she was much more interested in the playground that is in between the different fields. This year, the fields that Michael will play at have bleachers. We had to bring down chairs last year so this is one less thing to bring out there with us.
Here are a few pictures from the game and a team photo.
