There's so much that I hope I will remember about this baseball season. There's of course just the normal every day run of the mill baseball -
Turns at bat:
Running the bases:
And taking the field.
So much so that we ended every inning with 3 outs vs. the 5 run rule and barely let the other team make it through their entire line-up over the course of the entire game. Our team on the other hand ended every single inning with a 5 run rule and came just 3 people short of making it through our entire line up 3 times.
But those aren't the things I will remember most about these games. I will remember Connor akwardly carrying his bat and trying to run with it to 1st base after getting a hit. And me cheering him on, shouting "RUN!!, RUN!!, RUN!!!!, and laughing so hard as he akwardly tried to carry his bat, hold his helmet and run at the same time. So much so that I didn't even think to snap a single picture of it. You will have to take my word for it - it was priceless.
I will remember the too big helmets that bobbed up and down as they ran and occassionaly had to be held on to.
And skippy here taking his time to get to the base.
And I will remember the little kid who instead of running from 2nd to 3rd chased a ball into the outfield much to the surprise of the fielders, but who still managed to get to the base before they thought to tag him. :)
But most of all I will remember this...
Their smiles. And the fact that I smiled so big, and so much that my cheeks hurt afterwards. That's what I will remember most about this season.
