Before we left Tanek told me he might get to play catcher and that I could take his picture. I was so glad he told me that because I wasn't going to take my camera because I had got quite a few pictures on Saturday. Sure was glad I took it. He is the cutest little catcher ever and he does a good job. He throws the ball back to the pitcher whether they want it or not. He took his job very seriously. After a few long innings all the gear was getting a little heavy and uncomfortable. It weighs more than he does I think.
It was a nice evening for a ball game. Not too hot and not too cool. The sun wasn't in our eyes and it was just pleasant weather.
All this protective gear gets pretty heavy after awhile. Hopefully the rest of the season will go smoothly. It is a shame when sports are ruined by over zealous coaches that evidently think if they win it makes them look big. Glad that Tanek wasn't aware of what was going on with them. He is just having fun. Most of the kids at this age don't even know or care what the score is and it isn't really supposed to be an issue. It was with this coach and his sidekick last night. Most of the coaches at this level are for the kids, but I guess there always has to be one or two.
