Here is a historic picture: Bean's very first time at bat in a baseball game. Since we all know he has a long and glorious career as a ball player in front of him, we will all smile fondly as we see how far he will go from this humble beginning. Bless his little six-year-old heart, he's so scared of that pitching machine that he has totally forgotten anything I've taught him about batting stance. However, scared though he may be, he's out there facing his fears. I don't know about you, but I didn't face my fears today, so I'm impressed.
Playing first base was less scary and more fun. I happened to snap this photo when he was busy chewing on his glove, but he really did get lots of exciting action and he did a very good job.
Roo was so inspired by the sight that she snagged our spare glove and ball and figured out how to play "catch."
