Alright, that is highly unlikely, especially when his dad keeps hitting him with a baseball.
Anyway, my little guy started his baseball career this evening. You are looking the future #20 for his little team. #20, not after his daddy, who is, and forever will be, #2, but #20 after his distant relative Goose Goslin, who finished his career in 1938 as #20 for the Washington Senators and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1968, who, like my Silly Goose, batted left and threw right.
The little baseball team is adorable, and there are already some ball players. My little guy was pretty good, but I'm sure will get better. We generally just do fast pitch in the yard but tonight they broke into 3 stations, one for soft toss, one for tee, and one for live pitching in the cage. Yes, that's correct. In the cage for 5 and 6 year olds.
The first station for the boy was the tee.
Then he did soft toss, and was, to be honest, not great. But he'll get better.
Then it was his turn in the cage.
Emily said she told him in the car on the way to practice that she didn't know who was more excited, him or me. He said it was definitely him.
That makes me happy.
