Look out Ichiro
Although the Mariner’s have taken the last two games from the Angels, they look like a team that is in a rebuilding mode. They could use some help around the field in a few positions. Here are a couple kids that just might give a few Mariner’s a run for their money out on the ball field.
Caleb and Rylee playing the infield, ready to make a play to first base. While on defense, every ball that is put into play goes over to first base. Each inning the every player gets to hit and advance one base for each at bat. The last player gets a “home run” clearing the bases. Both Rylee and Caleb had multiple opportunities to field a ground ball and throw it to first base. They both did great!
I got to pitch again to the kids and had a great time. My ERA is through the roof, but that is a good thing! Rylee and Caleb both seem to be having so much fun. I am delighted to see how both kiddos adapt so well to the organization of the team sport. They are even making new friends. After the game today Caleb asked me where one of the boys who was missing was. I love it! I also really enjoy getting to coach my kids and partner with a great organization serving our community. The kids are having fun and Karissa and I are getting to know the other players parents. At one point in the game, AGAIN we caught Caleb and Rylee giving each other a congratulatory hug on first base. The big smiles on these moments as well as seen throughout the whole game make the day so much fun.
