Play Ball!

Little League Spring Season 2012 is officially in full swing as of yesterday.  Joey is thrilled to be back in the field.

This season he’s moved up to the Double A division, the first year in which standings matter – so it’s becoming more competitive.  Michael is managing/coaching his team, and I’m sharing team mom duties with another mom – which basically means I get to organize parties and send out harassing emails hitting families up for money.

Joey has come so far!  I remember like it was yesterday how much I sweated over his getting a hit when he played in the Rookie division a couple years ago, because I wanted him to taste success at something he cares so much about.  His confidence and skill level have both grown, and it’s just really wonderful to watch him doing something he has so much passion for.

Yes, it’s all about the kids having fun . . . but we kicked our opponents butts yesterday, 14 – 5.

It’s going to be a great season!
