Today was Sam's first Challenger baseball game of the year. At first I think he was a bit disappointed because there was no mud on the field (there is usually more mud than field)... but he found a way to get dirty anyway. Sam still does not want to wear his hat, batting helmet and will only occasionally agree to wear his mitt but I am pleased to say that he stayed on the field the entire game. Pat got a work out but Sam didn't escape once and he didn't throw any balls into the road... the 8 foot fence worked to our advantage.
I think Sam gets bored in the field and would rather play in the dirt but he seems to have caught on to base running. In his own round-about way he makes it to first base and eventually all the way around... he even slid into home plate!
WTG Challengers!!!! Great game today!
