Today was opening day for our local baseball little league. I'm not one to try to navigate such activities whilst pregnant so Tad had the 3 baseball players, David and the camera while I sat on the sidelines of JT's lacrosse game. JT's team won a close game and he played quite well, with a couple of assists and coming up with his first win at a face-off.Betsy and Ruth are members of the Diamondbacks team and Ben (much to his chagrin) is a local Yankee. The opening day festivities included 2 inning exhibition games, a parade and lots of other food and fun. The coach of the Diamondbacks gave each of his girls (the only all-girl team in the league) flashing "diamond" rings to sport during the parade which made it all worth it for them. Nobody is too sure who won their game since, as Tad reported, it's not whether you win or lose, but how your hair looks when you pick up the bat (or perhaps how high you jump when you reach home plate).I think Ben and the older boys were hoping for some real action but they did get their first taste at a game with a team they are slotted to play for "real" on Tuesday evening.
