Liam's 1st Home Run and Hind Catcher Follies

This is Liam's first year to play baseball. He is having so much fun and has a great attitude even when he strikes out or gets thrown out at first because he doesn't run very fast . He got the game ball last Saturday because his first big hit knocked in the winning runs. Last night, he hit a home run. Of course, in the 4-6 year old league, a home run means that the other team's kids were throwing the ball around the field like crazy. But still... it was very exciting!

My video skills are still sadly lacking but at least this video is way better than the video of Garrett's home run in THIS post. Once I saw Liam round third and head toward home and I realized that he was about to get a home run, I totally forgot about focusing the camera on him and almost missed his slide into home plate. It was a very close call, but he did it! Yeah for Liam!

P.S. This time, it is not me screaming like a banshee on the video. It was the grandmother sitting next to me. Okay, maybe that was me screaming just a little bit at the end.

This is a funny video of Liam playing catcher. With the protective equipment being almost bigger than he is, it's a little hard to find the ball sometimes.

Gotta run now, we're headed back to the ball park and soccer field!
