PARKER'S FIRST T-BALL GAME!!!
Well needless to say it was a priceless moment. We have been practicing a lot with him hoping he would really enjoy playing the game. This past week he has been getting better and better at hitting. He also seems much less afraid of the ball and has been catching it some.
Well the moment of truth came and his first game is here. He was SO EXCITED to get his uniform and realize he is number 8 on the REDS. Parker's team was up to bat first and he was toward the end of the lineup. After 6 runs and right before Parker's first bat they switched. So I explained he got to lead off next inning. He started off playing outfield and didnt see much come his way. But then he got to play 3rd base and the only ball that came toward him he ran up and stopped it and threw it to 1st. We were so proud of him. Oh yeah and both at bats he got good hits and ran to 1st beating out the throws. Then made it home. At one point in the game when he realized his team was doing very well by getting the other batters out he yelled, "THIS IS AWESOME THIS IS THE BEST GAME EVER!!!" In the dug out Parker was the leader getting the team pumped up and cheering for every one of their teammates. He said his favorite part was at the end lining up and telling the Blue Jays "good game".
