First baseball game with Jake

So last Sunday I took Jake to his first Braves game. It was a big deal for both him and me.. We had to start our day off of course with the VARSITY. You have not been to a ball game unless you have eaten at the Varsity first. Then we sat on a ton of traffic because of all the road work inside the perimeter. BrUTAL. Then once we got to the game Jake’s eyes lit up and the size of the field, the size of the BIG SCREEN and the excitement in the crowd. We both had our gloves waiting for a fly ball in right field. To bad Braves lost bad 14-5. So as the Braves were getting crushed Jake got to do some batting cages and just be a kid. It couldn’t have been better (ok maybe a win would have been better).

And so it begins….

So Jake signed up for football last Saturday and will start practices in August.
He has played soccer, basketball, and baseball. In each sport he just wants to tackle people.
Outside of me being concerned that Jake can’t get off the ground with all his pads on, I think he’ll have a good time.

For those that don’t know me well, I have deep roots in this sport and I hope my son enjoys it. Bring out the tums! Lord help me.

Jake Got the Game Ball

No picture (yet)…
But just thought you should all know… my boy went 3-3 in his new baseball helmet ($20 nike supercool lid from Dick’s Sporting goods) and yes…. he killed it. Proud of him even when he was playing with his gum and a line drive went right by him in center field. Problem was that they didn’t let him wear his helmet out in the field. 😉
