Gearing up for baseball season

We signed Nolan up for another year of baseball last night.

He’s graduating from Tee Ball and moving on the “Rookie” level. Rookie basically follows Tee Ball rules, except coaches pitch to the kids and outs are now recorded in the field. However, no matter how many outs everyone still gets a turn at bat each inning. There are no strike-outs and no walks. If the batter swings and misses five or six times then he/she gets to use a tee.

Like Tee Ball, no “official” score is kept. But as we saw in soccer, the kids will probably keep track anyway.

It looks like Nolan will get to have the same manager as last year and many of the same teammates, which is very cool. I’m also hoping to be an assistant coach again.

I took Nolan with me to the sign-ups at the high school. He was disappointed because he thought he was actually going to get to play ball last night. He didn’t like it when I told him he had to wait four more months before the season starts.

Spring training is right around the corner...
