My Son's First B-ball Game
Last night was my son's first baseball game. He chose it over lacrosse. Now this will give him something to do in the spring. He and his dad have been going to the batting cages for about 4 months now. It helps but not like playing in a real game. He got a base hit and brought a guy home. Not bad for his first.
I was not as prepared. I left my camera home. I always take it with me. So I went up to a total stranger and asked her if she would take some pics of my son and e-mail them to me. I didn't think that was too much. She was sitting there with a very nice camera so I figured she knew what she was doing. She was very nice and said that would be fine. It just happened her son was on the other team and so was everyone else I managed to sit with. So I have her to thank for my pics.
Then I almost got hit with a foul ball. It was coming right at me. It is really hard to judge exactly where it is going. There was like 5 things going through my head to make me not move my butt over. Is it going to hit me? Should I try and catch it? If I catch it will it hurt or maybe break a finger? If I hurt my hand will I be able to sew? Then I put my arms up like thats going to help block it. Then I figured if I don't move it is going to hit me square on the head, so I moved. And sure enough it would have smacked me right on top of my head. I felt like such a doofus. Should I show my face at another game? My son was not embarrassed but my husband was making fun of me from across the field!!! That is ok I would have done the same to him.
Other than all of that I really enjoyed the game. I am not really a baseball fan but it was fun watching the kids. They all looked so cute in their little uniforms.
Triston figured out I asked her to take pictures of him. So he is pointing at her asking me if she is photographing him. I think he was glad for once I forgot my camera!
