Austin and Ethan both played TBall for the first time this summer.  We did it through the YMCA.  It was a great program to just get them familiar with playing and they both had a blast.  Ethan’s team name was Angry Birds, which is the name he suggested.  Austin’s team name was Orange Crush.  They had a couple practices the first 2 weeks and then played “games” for the rest of the season.  The games let everyone bat each inning and run the bases. Not outs, no scores.  It was pretty cute.  My favorite part was the giant helmets they had to wear when batting and running the bases. They looked like bobble-head kids because the helmets were way too big.  Austin’s team was the funniest.

After Ethan’s last game, his coach and wife through them an awesome pizza party.  All the cool angry bird plates, bags, toys, masks and cupcakes were all from them.  SUCH nice people.  They made the season so fun for the kids.  Ethan has a great arm and really loved the game.  I think next year we’ll try to find him a coach pitch league, he’s definitely ready for the next level and for a more competitive type of game.

This is Austin’s best bud Colden.  They spent most of their time in the outfield kicking dirt on each other.
