Hey batter, batter

Tatum is enjoying softball. She went 2-3 and 3-3 in her opening two games of fastpitch softball. We had some extra practice batting sessions at the cages as she was hit by the pitching machine early on and got a bit afraid of the ball. She's likes the first pitch and she likes to hit the 3rd base line.

Fielding is where you find all the action (read parental entertainment). Tatum took a turn at second base. She was doing great. Lined herself up with the ball, didn't over charge and waited...
...trapped the ball in her glove with her right hand...lookin' good...that's my kid!...
...turned to tag the runner and dropped the ball...whose kid is that?!...
...lost it in the wind and dust...kicked up some more dust for good measure...
...found it just as the runner was approaching...
...and barely missed the runner as she safetly got to second base.
Two more games per week until the end of the season. Stay tuned for more...um, entertainment.

Go Tatum!!!!!! I am impressed. fast pitch softball is no joke. At least your child wasn't the one in the outfield watching the butterflys. (cough, my Emma, we'll stick with dancing and cheering) Happy spring :)

Oh, brought back lots of memories. Our girls never played soccer but were softball nuts and daddy was the coach. I remember those days like they were yesterday. They go too fast!

..brings back the very fresh memory of yesterday on the soccer sideline watching a bunch of 8 year olds trying to kick the ball - anywhere..doesn't matter where, just so long as you kick it. lol x
