The Maroon Tigers

Tonight was Graham's first t-ball practice as a 'Maroon Tiger'. When we signed him up, I had visions of lounging on a blanket and enjoying a picnic while we cheered Graham and his teammates on. How silly I was....tonight, it was a balmy 56 degrees with rain. The kids (all 4 who had parents crazy enough to brave the weather) couldn't have cared less that they were cold and wet, and the parents huddled together near the benches wondering when the coaches would finally call it a night.

Graham was so excited all day for his first practice so there was no way we could have let chilly air and rain keep us away. The team will spend the summer working on drills (throwing, hitting, and running the bases) and end their season with one game. Before tonight, I wondered why there was only one official game. Then tonight happened and I got my answer. These kids are all 4 and 5 years old and playing in the dirt is just as exciting as taking their turn at bat. Should be an exciting t-ball season for the 'Maroon Tigers'!
