T-Ball is Serious Business...






At least that's how it begins. Tucker LOVED t-ball, LOVED it! And I loved that he loved it because I am a mean mom and would use it to threaten him into good behavior. :) Here he is at the beginning of his game full of smiles, ready to show the other team what the Tigers are all about!











Warming up is super important and can't be properly done unless Tucker displayed a rad face. I always know when he's concentrating because he holds his mouth open. I always get a kick out of it!









He means business in the fields and while running. Notice his tongue in the second picture, he's CONCENTRATING!




He will, I repeat, he WILL beat the crap out of you in order to get the ball. If it means pushing, punching, or laying on top of another team mate he won't hesitate. There are NO rules according to Tucker, the ball is HIS!!








He's a lefty, that's right... a LEFTY. We taught him to bat left and it didn't seem to matter how much he batted he STILL couldn't remember where to stand when he got up to the plate.



The magic of the game soon wore off and Tucker is left to entertain himself by other means. In the second picture I like his buddy relaxing in the field. Seriously Tuck, GET UP!



We never knew Tucker was SO interested in a good hand stand. On base or in the field, it didn't matter, he felt it necessary to practice, practice, practice. So what if he's in the middle of a game.

I like how he decided to take his hat off and chit-chat with a new buddy from the other team. Just relaxing in the field rather than keeping the same competitive spirit he began with.

I LOVED this post. It brought back LOTS of memories of Davis picking flowers in the outfield, dancing, and talk up a storm with the opposing team's coaches!! I love these little memories. I can't wait for my kids to grow up and read all about what they REALLY did when they were little:)

Hilarious! I loved the photo montage especially of him dilly dallying in the outfield. Classic. Can't wait for my littles to get to this stage.
