All of my kids played ball, but I'll never forget Lil Man when he started T-ball, he looked at that "TEE" and said "dis is 'tupid"..and they asked him why "he said if you throw it I would hit it" ...we had to MAKE him hit off that T. He was used to seeing Big Boy his brother playing "Big Boy" ball and thought he was being insulted with that TEE! LOL! Sorry...He never wanted to play baseball...BUT OH ME! At the nervous stomachs I had at Football games!
I miss those times! You girls sign those kids up and enjoy it! It was one of my highlights in time. Just remember, its a game, not life or death. Like so many parents fail to remember. That killed alot of self esteem back during our time with the kids. Seen many little faces walk off the field so hurt. Parents were cruel. Coaches were too. I believe its more "civilized" now. I hope so.
