In addition to my fear of him suffering a terrible head injury, I also have a fear of anything that involves a 6 day a week commitment. I struggled with getting him to and from baseball that was only 2-3 days per week...the thought of up to 6 days a week made me paralyzed with fear. Thankfully for me and my sanity, he loved baseball so much in the spring that he wanted to play again this year. Crisis averted.
I have to say, I'm really enjoying it! It's like watching a true baseball game out there, I think because the kids who sign up are a bit more serious if they're playing in the fall....they are so into the game! Since it's not a regular season, the team gets to pick the name rather than being assigned one....we are the Bomb Squad! Here are some shots from the season so far:
