Maxwell is playing baseball this year and, man, once you get to first grade ball they aren’t messing around! It’s not uncommon to have either a practice or game 4 nights a week and sometimes as late as 7pm! Luckily, Maxwell seems to be enjoying it and loves to play! Up to bat at one of his first practices…
He’s on the Pirates this year and they look pretty sharp in their yellow and black…they also look a bit like bumblebees but don’t tell him that! 😉
Maxwell is right in the middle on his team – not the best (those boys played All Stars and fall ball!) and definitely not the worst. He’s been a little frustrated with his batting and has struck out a few times. But, he’s gotten better each game and I know he’s going to keep improving if he works at it. He has all the steps – just needs to put them together in that swing!
It’s big time now and they keep score and are playing for the championship! The Pirates are doing good so far – we’ll see how the season ends up!
I also have to hand it to these baseball fans – they’ve been really good sports…and really enjoy the cherry icees from the concession stand!
If you’re looking for us the next few weeks, we’ll probably be at the ball field!
Take me out to the ball game!
