My grandson, who is 5, swung his bat with joy, laughing as it connected with the ball. He played his first Little League scrimmage game with joy.
He then preceded to run when his coach yelled, “Run, J!” The only problem instead of running to first base he ran out to left field. The coach ran after him, and he mistakenly thought the coach and he were playing a game so he ran away from him, laughing the whole time.
Later, he sat on the field drawing in the dirt.
Little League Baseball is Time for Fun
Little League is such a fun time for children.
I feel sad for kids whose parents take things to seriously and seem embarrassed when their children doesn’t perform like they expected them too.
They yell watch the ball, catch the ball. Run. They are too serious and take the fun out of the game.
I enjoyed watching my grandson, laugh and play. The onlookers laughed with him as he giggled and ran around in the outfield thinking the coachers chased him as if in a game of tag.
