When I signed Aaron, Tyler (on the same team), and Ammon all up for baseball I had no idea how I was going to do it with practices and games as well as Emily in gymnastics. I felt good about it, so off we went.
I have watched every game and practice like its the world series. I love seeing the excitement on their faces as they connect with the ball.
There has been quite a few games with Tyler and Aaron that they were the majority of RBI's. So proud!
Ammon has been able to use those long legs of his and play center field brilliantly. He provides a great back up if the infield misses the catch and has improved so much on his batting.
I told all the boys that all I wanted for
them in the baseball season was for them to improve even if it was just a little bit throughout the season. They have more than surpassed that. I think a lot of that has to do with the great coaches we scored. The one to the left with Aaron is Coach Norm. As in Norm Angelini. A major league pitcher. His son the head coach was drafted in the minor leagues and dropped out because he wanted a better life for his family. It has been awesome!
Ammon's coach is great as well and has a great support too. They have been really patient with Ammon and have taught him well.
Who knew that I would be as proud as I am. Don't get me wrong, I am excited to get my nights and weekends back but I have a feeling that I will be spending a lot of time on the bleachers for many years to come!
