Billy played half of the game at catcher.
It's a tough position, he wasn't thrilled about it at first, but I think he's getting used to the idea.
This is the dugout. Parents are not allowed in the dugout. You can see that things are pretty serious in there. Lots of baseball thoughts happening no doubt.
The catcher seemed to be having some serious thoughts too.
I take an insane amount of pictures at baseball games. I'll try to spare you from them this summer. Maybe....no promises. Here's Billy batting.
Here's Billy on base with clean pants.
Here's Billy diving back to base with pants that aren't clean anymore. Sigh. Baseball means a lot of laundry.
Here's that serious dugout again. Hmm...maybe the chatter has gotten away from baseball. No wonder we aren't allowed in there.
Billy got to play first for part of the game. He likes first.....I think he likes it because I play first on my softball team....he wants to be just like mom. OR NOT!
They had their first game of the season last night and he got his ankle stomped on while playing first....that wasn't good. I won't even go into my thoughts on kids that age wearing metal spikes...I'll just say that I'm glad it wasn't worse than it was....and that I wasn't there when it happened.
Here's a view of the stadium from the outfield. There weren't many fans in the stands, but the boys didn't care. They just liked playing there.
