Me too!! I think for some of us kids, the "T" was too high...but we won our local championship....The Greensville Astros!!

My dad even built a tee so I could practice at home, I still couldn't hit the stinkin' ball.
I remember feilding a fly ball once- I kept an eagle eye on that sucker and made dam sure it hit the ground well away from me.

My son loves soccer and hockey.
He is really good at baseball but it is too boring for him at 5 1/2.
I am trying to keep him in sports with lot's of movement.
He starts lacrosse in a couple of weeks so that should keep him busy for 3 months.
Swimming is probably one of the most important activities for a child.
My attitude is to let him try everything and then he can choose what he wants to participate in.

Very good, Mark, but give'm a football, too.


Thanks, John.

He's not built as heavily as my brothers and me. He could bulk up some later - you never know - but I'm thinking golf and baseball right now. Those are the two sports he says he likes. Gonna have to start sneaking him onto the course in my bag, I guess.

Milliken turns into Hamner south of the 60. That's about 5 miles away and another mile east.

Stuff gets built here so fast you never know what's what. You could Google "Harada Park" to see the exact location.

Regarding crazy parents... I never really noticed until I started coaching high school sports. Who knew people were so irrational, so delusional, so blind, proud and stupid when it comes to assessing the talent of their offspring? \:o

Yeah, Mark; I certainly learned that as well during the five years I was a volunteer coach in high school football.

I think if I was a celebrity I'd rather throw out the first pitch at a tee ball game instead of a baseball game. Then I'd just be setting the ball on a tee. Of course, the embarrassment factor would go way up if I couldn't even accomplish that.

I'm with most folks above. Nothing wrong with starting a kid young as long as they are having fun. If they don't like it, let them pick what they would like to try next. Just pray they don't choose goalie in hockey. I think they could get into junior go cart racing cheaper than you can buy hockey gear for a goalie.

Of course, considering you are posting pictures of green grass and t-shirts while we watch the last (hopefully last) of the snow melt, you are probably safe on that one.

Great pics too by the way!

Yeah, that's it! I used to work in Mira Loma right by the 15 and 60. On Fridays we'd all head on down to the park and pretend like we could play softball.
