It’s Opening Day!!!!!

Rawlings GloveIt’s finally here!  That’s right, Opening Day is finally here, and I could not be more excited.

This year, however, Opening Day is even more special because it happens to also be the same day as Kaitlyn’s first baseball game of the season.

Last year, she played T-ball for the first time.  She did pretty good, and seemed to enjoy herself a lot, despite being one of two girls on the team (I may be biased here, but the girls were probably two of the three or four best players on the team).

This year, Kaitlyn has moved up to coach pitch, which is exactly what the name would have you think it is.  The coaches pitch to the hitters.

We started practicing in February, and Kaitlyn has gotten better with each practice.  Her coach, who we specifically requested since we are friends with him and Kaitlyn is friends with his son, is patient with her and with all the kids.  The kids seem to really enjoy being out there, and seem to be having a good time so far.  Their main focus is on having fun and getting better, and they are certainly doing both.

Starting today, and running pretty much through the middle of May, this Red Sox fan will cheer on and support Kaitlyn and her Braves teammates.  Atlanta_Braves4
