For the serious baseball fan

T-ball played by Kindergarteners is an acquired taste. It much less
about the baseball, the score or even the rules. It's all about
hanging with kids you've never met before and finding your new best
friend for ever.

No T-ball for me growing up. I had five sisters and we were all the wrong sex for playing baseball. It was the stone age you know.
My girls never expressed an interest in T-ball when they were little. In fact, I don't know if T-ball was offered to little girls 18and 15 years ago.
Now softball, that's another story. Both played in grade school and loved it. Girls, when I were growing up, were included in softball games, but only if there was no crying, like in baseball.

So many things have changed over the years. My mom gave up her career as a school teacher because she was pregnant with me. You wouldn't want a pregnant woman making the kids ask questions.

Those were the days. I miss watching little girls show up for t-ball wearing frilly skirts and without a glove while my tomboy-daughter indignantly complained to me that "You CAN'T play t-ball in a SKIRT!" I miss watching the outfielders pick dandelions and the highlight of the game being the treats that were served when the game was over.

Now it's about the pick-off and stealing bases and making it to State. Still fun, but I miss those innocent days.

These innocent times are fun. We worry every year that some parent is gonna take it seriously and ruin the fun. Each kid getting a chance to bat is fun. Picking dandelions is even more fun!

Last night, the treat was watermelon...what do you think was the biggest hit of the evening?
