Wow. After two rainouts we played a make up game. The electric pitching machine was not the greatest, but something about it clicked with the kids. They could see the ball and get their timing (for the most part).
Ten of my eleven kids showed up. We had hits every inning and scored 4 runs. It was awesome!
Saturday afternoon games with a temperature of 85 made it hot to play. I ran around in the field reminding kids to be ready and trying to continually show them how to be ready. I felt really bad for the kids that cycled through playing catcher though. It was really hot and none of them wanted to do it a second inning.
