My favorite baseball games to watch are my kids’ little league games. May and June were packed with games between my son’s farm league and my daughter’s tee ball. It is really fun to watch the kids’ skills improve throughout the season. Tee ball was pretty entertaining this year. It was lil Missy’s first year in tee ball. The age group was 4-6 year olds. We giggled through the first few games; the players are just so darn cute. When my very social daughter played first base, she’d chat with each runner from the other team on base. When Missy was the runner going to second base, her teammate forgot to run to third, so she ran to second base and shoved him towards third. My favorite play was when a runner from our team was on second base and ran out into the outfield to get the ball when his teammate hit it!
This summer my mom took my daughter to her first Cubs game (along with me and my oldest son). The four of us walked to our seats while the team was warming up. My daughter’s mouth dropped open and exclaimed, “Adults are playing?!” My son loved the game, my daughter liked visiting the concession stands…
