Mason’s First T-Ball Game
Today was the Jefferson County Little League Jamboree! Mason was so excited when he woke up and concerned we would not get to the field in time for the 11 o’clock game. It was 7:15. After breakfast we got him into his uniform. The pants and t-shirt werre huge even though they were size small. He was proud of his uniform and beamed.
At the field we met up with his coach and the other kids. Team pictures were an adventure as the photographer attempted to get ten four to six year olds to all look in the same direction and smile.
It was then time for the game and I volunteered to be the third base coach and help keep the Fighting Okra organized in the outfield. Mason’s team was up first and I had a great view of his first at bat. He missed on the first swing, and then hit an line drive and beat the pitcher to first base. A hit is a pretty good way to start a baseball career. The rest of the game was fun to watch. The little kids on both teams were sweet, and it was amusing to see the kids swarm on the ball. The best was when a boy of Capital City Bank hit the ball to the fence and almost everyone, including Mason from his SS position sprinted to the ball.
When the game was over Mason said he had fun and wanted to go home to practice. I am glad he enjoyed himself and he is already looking forward to his next game on Monday night.
