Little League Opening Day 2015

This year Andrew is in the Rookie League doing coach pitched baseball.

Our season kicked off today with the Opening Ceremonies this morning followed by his first game this afternoon. The rain held off (other than some minor hail) so we were so excited!

This year Andrew is on the Nationals. Last year he was on the Red Sox. Several of the same kids from his team last year are on his team this year, which makes it fun since we already know people.

Andrew played well and definitely goofed off quite a bit with his friends when he wasn't batting or in the field. Hopefully at some point he learns to just watch the game... but in the meantime I am at least happy he is having fun!

He got to played catcher today for one inning and was adamant that he doesn't want to do that again. He wasn't a fan. :)

The games at this stage go really slow. The game lasted two hours and the kids were really into it at the beginning and then were totally done at the end. Good thing there are snacks at the end! Definitely something to look forward to every week.

For the next few months Andrew will have a game three days a week. I am so glad I don't have either of the other kids in any extracurricular acitivites or I might go crazy! I don't like having tons of scheduled events.

Today Andrew managed to hit the ball every time that the pitcher threw it to him. Yay! I think we're going to have a great season!
