Today is Opening Day for the Spring Little League Baseball season! Alex didn’t want to play this season, as we’re still wrapping-up Basketball season, and he didn’t want to miss any games. But Adam (top row, second from the left) leans baseball and is playing for the Braves this year…

Let’s see: Baseball, CHECK! Basketball, CHECK! Throw in a football and we’ve got it covered! 🙂

It’s a great night for baseball and Adam’s Red Sox are playing the Rangers. Adam steps up to the plate and stares down the pitcher (which is actually his coach manning the sling that pitches the ball).

Adam Swings

The ball is released and CRACK! Adam hits the ball right down the third base line, lands on second base for a double, and stretches it to a triple on an overthrown ball!

Then Adam brings it home on a hit off the next batter!

And that just made his night!

Baseball season is coming to a close for the boys. The gators made the playoffs and finished 3rd. We had a great time this year and the boys skills improved considerably. Today, we cap-off the year with a picnic at the baseball park.

and the trophy presentations. Adam is suitably nonchalant in his acceptance. No applause, please.

Alex shows a little more enthusiasm…

Can’t wait until next year! (or maybe…Fall ball :-))

It’s another great Gator baseball day! The weather has been great these past few days and the boys have been itching to get back on the field. Alex was psyched as he got to play catcher today!

After another win, the Gators head to the dugout for snacks…which is probably the only reason they come to play.

Another great day of baseball! Adam is at the bat. The coach takes a wind-up and tosses the ball. Adam swings. CRACK!

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!!
