Well, the day has finally arrived! The 2015 season opener. The MSA Gators vs. The MSA Tigers! The boys are ready…

After the pre-game photo-op, the boys head to the dugout with their equipment manager…

The game was a lot of fun, which is exactly what coach-pitch baseball is supposed to be. The boys did well hitting the ball, but like the rest of the kids, still need to work a bit on their fielding.

Adam’s a ‘Lefty’…

and Alex is a ‘Righty’…

The highlight of the game (at least for Adam) was playing catcher…especially getting to wear the “armor”…

It’s the first practice of the season. The boys are in coach-pitch tee-ball, and have been drafted, once again, to THE GATORS! It’s going to be another great year!!

Baseball season has come to an end and the only thing left is to hand out the trophies to the Gator T-ball Team! The boys were pretty excited about the ceremony…

Adam gets his trophy Alex gets his trophy

but were more enthusiastic about the ice cream party afterward!

Today’s T-ball game is rained-out, but we received the boys base ball photos in the mail, so it’s not a total loss…

It’s another great day at the ball park and it’s “Mighty Alex” at the bat! Just look at the classic T-Ball swing followed by the I-gotta-go-but-what-do-I-do-with-my-bat pause. Once he gets going though, there’s no stopping him! Notice he even puts his head down just before the triumphant jump onto first base!

I love baseball!

Great day at the ball park. The boys are coming along with their skills. Adam does a great job getting in front of the ball and making the play…well ALMOST making the play. Oh, well, soon he’ll get used to the idea that the object isn’t to get the ball, but to get the ball to the first baseman!

Well, it’s finally here! The opening day! BASEBALL! America’s pastime…and the boys are starting their very first season! The thing I love best about baseball? It’s not SOCCER! 🙂

It appears that I’m the equipment manager, as their bag is almost as big as they are…

Opening Day Opening Day

The boys’ team is the GATORS! (I know, right?) Today, we’re the home team, so the boys take the field. Alex covers first base, while Adam backs him up with his best Snagglepuss-Exit-Stage-Right pose…

Alex on first

After their opponents lineup completes its at-bats, it’s time for the Gators to knock it out of the park (or at least past the little “fair ball” line in front of the batter’s box). Both the boys connected with the ball and landed on first amidst the ensuing chaos that occurs whenever anyone hits the ball!

Alex Runs Adam Runs

It was a great first game and the boys had a great time (especially when they discovered they get a snack)! Okay! Put your hands in! GO GATORS!

Today marks the beginning of baseball season! Adam and Alex attended t-ball tryouts for the Mandarin Athletic Association. The boys did pretty well, and we discovered that Adam really has a good arm!

Here’s Adam hotting the ball off the tee, and running to First Base…

Unfortunately, we were so excited watching the boys play, that we completely missed Alex at the bat!! 🙁
