Brody FINALLY got to make his first pitching debut last Sunday. He's been waiting for this day for awhile. Previously, he has only played t-ball and Sunday was the real deal. No coach pitch, entirely player pitch. That's kind of a lot in second grade I think, but we just roll with the rules.
Brody, as my mom would say, was like a fart on a hot tin skillet Sunday morning. He had his uniform, belt and all the things laying out for over a week. This kid loves, loves, loves baseball.
Aaron, I mean Coach Dad, let the kids pitch an inning at a time. Brody pitched second in the first game and in typical fashion, I was a nervous wreck. What is it about your child pitching that makes your stomach do flip-flops?! I'm the same way with Jenna.
Anyway, Brody did ok the first game and found his control even better the second game. After the game I told him I was proud of him and the kid was just smiling from ear to ear!
I was able to get some pictures of his very first go-around.
We'll just keep working at it and I'll keep my fingers crossed he keeps lovin' it!
