Opening Day Celebrations
Last night was the Opening Day Celebrations for Little League. Every team was introduced. The above picture shows the four teams of the T-Ball players. I think there is a lot of coaches who have their hands a bit full, but it was fun to watch as these little ones begin to learn the ropes of what it means to be a part of Little League.
Here is part of Selena’s team. It was hard to get all 14 kids in the picture, including Selena. They all looked so cute though in their uniforms, clean, and ready to get this ceremony over with.
It was finally our turn to be introduced. The coach was introduced, then he introduced each player they ran from 1st base to home plate. It really was very cute.
My all time favorite, Selena waiting her turn to be introduced, hand in pocket and all. Usually her pony tail is through the hole in the back of the hat but hey what do you expect with men coaches after the kids had to remove their hats for the Pledge of Allegiance.
I was hoping to get a picture of Selena as she ran from 1st base to home plate, I got this one as she was waiting for her turn, but she took off so fast I wasn’t able to get one of her actually running.
I think playing in the dirt was the highlight for most of the kids, Selena included. Now this is T-Ball! It really was a very fun evening, and we couldn’t have asked for better weather.
There first game is Tuesday, I am looking forward to seeing what these kids really think when they go up against a real team. This is liable to be a very fun and interesting adventure for all of us.
