T-Ball Saturday

Around noon on Saturday, Alex had a T-Ball baseball game. Grandpa and Grandma got to go watch. Kaylee prefers to ride the swing in the nearby park.

Ben was with Kaylee in the park for the first time around batting - each team bats around twice. I got to take pictures of Alex, first time around. The last half of the game is going on in the background, above.

Alex was up to bat first in the lineup, today.

He hit the ball nicely - can you see the ball flying away, under the bench, on right!
One coach helps them bat, the second coach worked first base. Hit, run, and fielding are skills being learned. No outs. They do learn about foul balls. Pretty neat, actually. Now, Alex, No. 2, is on first base, getting ready to run on the next hit ball. 

Now, Alex has advance around to third base, where Arrion, his Mom, is the coach today (far right), to help the runners remember when to run home. Everybody gets on base and everybody scores.

I missed Alex scoring, but here he is on the bench after crossing home base.

Snack time after the game seems the best - Grandpa, Ben and Grandma got in this photo by Arrion, and we didn't even know it. Alex on the left, with two teammates, having snacks.

Kaylee got to have a snack as well.

A great day at the ballpark...  ;-)
