Why I Love Baseball

Postby Mookie4ever » Sun Sep 26, 2004 7:25 am

There is a very nice baseball complex about 2 minutes from our home with 5 diamonds and when we go on our nightly walks we sometimes stop to watch an inning or two.

Yesterday there was a t-ball game going on. I'm pretty bad at guessing ages but I would say they were around 7 years old.

There was an infield hit (they were all infield hits :-b ) and a kid got caught in a "rundown" between 2nd and third. He ran off the basepath and saw how close he was to home plate - so he made a break for home...from second base. He went over the mound and slid into home. All of the parents laughed their asses of and gave the kid a standing ovation. ;-D

T-Ball is awesome to watch, but trust me you don't wanna umpire it :-o

I umped a whole game of T-ball and they didn't make one out. Not a single one. But it is funny to watch :-b I remember when I played, we had a kid who always struck out - in T-Ball, I mean come on!

Always fun to take a few steps back and watch those who actually play the sport for fun. I've watched a few little league and T-Ball games in my life when I needed to get priorities straight again. :-)

i have been umping t ball games for several years now, and have enjoyed every single game.....it gives me a break from high school games and aau games, as i love to see the enjoyment in a kids eyes as they hit the ball into the grass and get a inside the park hr(with 4 errors of course)..... u just cant beat the enthusiasm and the sportsmanship from the kids compared to the bigger boys.....
