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
) 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.
