Addison's baseball season ended a few weeks ago in the best way possible. His team, the Astros, won the AA championship.
It was a great learning experience, which really stretched him. He had only done one year of t-ball last year, so to then move up with the 7 and 8 year olds was quite a jump. For some of his teammates this was their 4th year playing.
Addison's coaches worked really hard with him to improve his ability to hit the ball, focusing on his posture at the plate and his swing. By the end of the season, he had really started to get it and was hitting consistently.
His fielding is still underdeveloped, which is why he often played catcher, but I have a feeling next year he'll grow by leaps and bounds in that area.
His teammates were a good group of boys...
...and his coaches were patient and incredibly dedicated.
By the end of the season, which started late March and went into early June, Trey and I were a little baseball weary. There were several weeks where between the two boys we had 4 and 5 games, which made evenings hectic.
But it was really enjoyable. We all love baseball so much, and there is something really simple and pure about it at this level.
