It was the first time any of my kids had done that. Usually the player tosses the ball to me or someone else around my kids and they hand the ball over to them. I have to be honest though. I am usually not happy until I get a ball myself. The most fun way to get a ball is to catch a homerun ball. Sure it is a batting practice homerun, but I am actually catching a ball that is hit from a Major League player that travels about 380 feet to get to me. The next most fun way to get a ball is to beat everyone else in a scramble. Well the last ball I got last year was like that. It was June 29. Here is a picture of the one I got and the ones Alina and Tommy got that day.
After that day I got shut out every game that I attended the rest of the season. That is why I stopped blogging about it. Well I am happy to say that 2010 has been much better for me. I have been to four games and I have only been shut out once (and in that game we got three balls total). So I’ll try to blog about 2010 soon.
