Our first game is in the books. It turns out that our league is really nice for a kid who’s never played before. At Oscar’s level, (“upper farm”) they don’t keep score, and each kid hits each inning. Once I saw how mellow it was, I took a deep sigh of relief. Oscar is going to have so much fun! To borrow the words of Uncle Joe, “What a thrill for them.” Joe, we’re all jealous too!
Uncle Cole took these awesome photos for us. They make the action look a little faster and crisper than it may have been.. We were laughing at the mis-match between the pro equipment and the game as it was. Still, I’m thrilled to have such a sweet account of my little guy in his first baseball game. Thank you Cole :)
This just came in – an email from our coach. I’m putting it in here because I love it.
We have two Oscars on our team. Evidently, our Oscar already has a nickname. Coach Rob gave it to him, so I’m pretty sure it’s here to stay.
Our schedule. (It’s just a screen shot so don’t expect it to pop up a cute map when you click. :)
Give us a heads up if you need some directions.
This was super fun. We got great weather, and we ran into all kinds of friends. Sometimes, raising kids in San Francisco doesn’t feel so “fringe”.
The event was really well organized and we are excited for Oscar’s first game tomorrow afternoon!
This is what we drove up to: the staging in the Presidio’s Main Post.
And It Begins. (Mohawk Optional.)
I was so happy to see Buster Posey back in the game, I took a picture!
Here’s the slideshow of Oscar’s party, which we had on his actual birthday:
Super Dooper Crazy Huge Special Thanks to Cole and Kiera – for the Cake, the Cookies, the Photography, the Baseball Coaching, and the Time! (More precious than gold these days!) We Love you!
Oscar, if you’re reading this, I love you Kiddo!
