Ryder got more and more comfortbale as the game went on, he let Derrik start to back away a little, warmed up to the coaches, and even told Derrik "we are making friends Daddy". He had the biggest smile on his face the whole time! I hate that he gets nervous and anxious around unfamiliar people... totally from my side of the family. I was the same way growing up. We'll just learn to deal with it :)
Lots of pictures.... I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Sittign with his teammates waiting for his at bat
His first at bat... Love his facial expression
I love watching all the kids running after each ball.
Waiting to run home... so excited
I just love this of the two of them. They were waiting after his at bat for the rest of the team to bat.
By his third at bat he let the coach put the ball on the tee. The coach was so great letting Ryder warm up to him. Ryder was really upset after he hit the coach on Monday with the bat.
He told us he was "really fast"
Little brother was totally into the game... lol
Todays game was a lot of fun, and I loved watching Derrik and Ryder get to go out there and do it together. Hopefully their team t-shirts are in for next weeks game... go Team Orange. We'll be out there every Monday for practice and Saturday for games until the first week in December. I'm sure there will be lots more pictures :)
