Here she is waiting for her first "at bat"
And here we go...
She hit a double!
We were so proud! (and of course would have been even if she hadn't done anything but she was beaming ear to ear) Granted, she swung at a ball that was a good foot above her head but she knocked it out of the infield and got around to second. I think she even shocked herself- definitely have some base running mechanics to work on as she almost got tagged out while meandering around second base. Oh, but then a few minutes later her coach sent her in to steal home when a ball got away from the infield, and she almost got thrown out but she plowed right into the catcher, knocked the ball loose and got her foot onto home plate (that part only happened because every in the stands was yelling at that she had to touch the plate!). I think she was in somewhat of a state of shock that she had just knocked someone else to the ground!
What a great first day at the ballpark!
