Take Me Out To The Ball Game
Here in Baltimore in the spring there are 2 sports....baseball and lacrosse. Depending on what your father grew up playing, usually determines what the sports the sons would play. When my hubby grew up, he played baseball. So it was a natural thing for his sons to do...
Ian only plays rec council baseball, which is much different than what his brother Josh played. Don't get me wrong, Josh "had" to play rec council ball too, but he hated every second of it. He would much rather have just played travel ball and high school ball, where the level of play is just a little more serious and the skill level a little more refined. Anyway, back to Ian. Ian is my kid who likes to do lots of things...he isn't too obsessed with baseball the way Josh was, but he still likes to play.
As a young teenage girl, I was sort of a tomboy. I played softball as that's all that girls were allowed to play back then. I was much like Josh...frustrated with the level of skill. I was a pretty good player and made a hand picked allstar team two years in a row. My favorite positions were third base and I would also pitch.
Ian likes to play third base. Josh also use to play third base but went on to become an awesome catcher in his travel league as well as high school. So far Ian's team isn't doing that bad this year. He is being coached again by Mr. Glenn, for the third year and he has already hit one home run in his first game. So most Monday and Thursday nights you will find me on the baseball diamond, cheering on Ian and his team. Go Cardinals!
Until next time....
