Take me out to the ballgame...

Tonight was Michael's first t-ball practice and he had a great time. Here is a quick recap of the night:

First they split the team into 2 mini-teams and Michael was on the side that got to bat first. Here he is waiting on the bench for his turn.

He swings and knocks the ball off the tee on the first try! Unfortunately, he was the second kid to bat and didn't quite grasp yet that he was supposed to run to first base after hitting the ball. After a little prodding from the coach, he dropped the bat and finally headed for first.

And here he is rounding second and heading for third. (Sorry - this one is a little blurry.)

And a moment in Michael history as he touches home plate to score his first run. (Not that we were keeping score.)

Then it was Michael's turn in the field. He was told to play first base but nobody told him that that meant he was supposed to stay on first base. Everytime someone hit the ball, Michael (and all of the other kids on the field) took off running to catch it.

After a few minutes, it didn't matter though because Michael's hat would have prevented him seeing the ball if it was thrown to him anyway.

That is until the coach helped him out by turning his hat around.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures. Let's hope that Michael's counts will be high enough to receive chemo tomorrow. Please keep Michael in your thoughts and prayers, JoAnne
