Opening Day.

Up until today, my favorite baseball player of all time was Willie McGee.  Now it’s this guy.

He was nervous.  The coach tried to pitch to him a few times, but eventually they had to bring out the tee.  I’m totally fine with that.  I’m sure even Willie started out with a tee.

I have never screamed so wildly over a simple base hit as I did today.

Unfortunately, Parker’s biggest cheerleader wasn’t feeling well.  She has a bad cold and was pretty miserable.  Hopefully she’ll make a full recovery by the next game!

Who doesn’t love a man in uniform.

WOW! Does Parker know he had a great great uncle who played in the major leagues?? He may have inherited some of that skill. Hurrah!! Grandma

Way to go, Parker! Carter hasn’t had his first game yet, but I’m sure he’ll be super nervous too. How cute are they in those uniforms?!
