Beautiful blue sky and freshly manicured fields. Heat, friends and laughter. There was only one thing missing – Practice on the Major’s field. Jon volunteered to help with the Farm League to get a bit more ball time. He has a few buds on the team Z, G, E & Miss T.
They put him in as catcher for the day. He got pretty hot. He said catching was fun. Squatting behind a pitching machine was not as intimidating as crouching down in front of a fast and hard pitching league boy.
Miss T is pretty serious. She is on Fiy Yah!
Jon is following after his brother’s foot steps in the volunteering areas. He is finding out that helping someone else – usually brings a lot of fun to the day along with extra possibilities to participate in areas that would have been closed. Thankful to this lil Farm League team – wishing them luck and remembering/practicing their skills during the World Series next weekend.
Having a couple of the coaches for the other Farm /Minor leagues ask if Jon could help at their practice made me smile. It’s good for boys to feel needed!
