Tee Ball

I always thought the game of baseball was exciting. Why does this not seem to be the case with six and seven-year old tee ball? Most of the poor kids, if not completely oblivious to what’s going on around them, seem genuinely bored with the game. Granted the hitting and fielding are certainly on the modest side of paltry but there are things to watch for. It would seem that most infielders are captivated by just how much limestone they can kick up from the baselines before being reprimanded. In fact, I witnessed my youngest filling his glove with the golden dust so that he could hurl it at those opponents that ran by him at short stop. I’m pretty sure that skill wasn’t covered in practice.

What say you?
