Pitching Debut

JBM will make his pitching debut later today.....he will most likely pitch only one inning. This has been an all consuming adventure for JBM and FlyBoy this week. I am staying out of it!
It has been an interesting journey to watch. The season started with a firm..."I don't want to pitch..I know I will not be good at it." Then, watching most of the rest of the team try, it became, "I guess I should think about it." FlyBoy and I decided it needed to his decision. So after the game on Saturday, JBM asked his dad if they could "practice." And practice they have for the past five the field and on the "make shift" pitching mound in our backyard (see below) which was created when we removed a large tree a few years ago. Note the slightly less green area of grass. It was a joke at first and has become a reality.
I will go to the game but will spend most of the time staring at the ground since the stress will be too much for me :) Guess I had better get used to it.
Anyhow, it might not happen because it is raining...stay tuned.


  1. ....Aaaaaand the memories come flooding back, It's all good;)

  2. Don't worry about it, he'll be fine. Just tie Fly Boy's hands behind his back and make him sit in the car.

  3. He is going to do awesome! I will pray right now! : )
