Matt is playing t-ball for the first time this year and he is so excited! We went out to the ballpark Thursday afternoon for the first time to let him hit on the field and run the bases. He hit ball after ball and ran all around the bases after every hit. I'd ask him if he needed to take a break and and he'd say, "No, I have to hit another one." I told him he didn't have to run the bases after every hit and he just looked at me like I had two heads. He hit the ball well, but he was a little disappointed that he didn't hit any over the fence like the kids in his favorite movie, The Sandlot. I'm sure we'll see him act out a few scenes from The Sandlot this year in t-ball! Let's just hope it's not the "Oh, ship!" scene!
Here are a couple more pictures. The second one is after we got through and Matt wanted to watch the big boys practice on the field beside ours. He was squatting down like the catcher.
Here's a short video of one of his hits and his trip around the bases. It kind of looks like footage from a bigfoot sighting as he rounds second base. Make sure your sound is tuned up at the beginning -- he was pretty impressed with himself!
