Marshmallow Mondays


Baseball

Baseball, baseball, baseball.  If we aren’t at Taekwondo these days, we’re at baseball.

Like this past Fall, Rydan is once again playing for Eastern Little League here in Lexington.  His team is the Detroit Tigers.

Rydan has played a handful of games so far, but the most exciting was this past Saturday against the Nationals.  As we sat shivering in the rain, it seemed like the game would never end.  Poor Lily’s bottom was completely soaked from going down the slide on the playground, but she still cheered and clapped for Rydan and his teammates.

When the game ended in a tie, we all groaned at the thought of sitting through extra innings in the miserable rain.  The cheers seemed to only get louder, though.  Parents shouted words of motivation for each player.  The boys began chanting a version of “We Will Rock You” from the dugout that I’d never heard before (and won’t repeat either), but it generated an energy and a spirit that wasn’t going to give up.  Finally after three extra innings, the Tigers finally scored the winning run.  We celebrated for the win, and for freedom from the rain.  Way to go, Tigers!
