Peter up at bat in his first game in the Mite League. This is his first experience with “kid pitch” baseball. In previous years, the ball was pitched by his own coach. Peter made a spectacular catch in the first inning. The ball was hit just over the infielders’ heads and Peter ran in from right field. He caught the ball just off the ground. After the catch, he held up his glove, showing he had made the catch. The crowd went wild.
Grace swings at a pitch in her first game in the Pee Wee League. Grace is playing baseball for the first time. Her coach is former UNC Center Eric Montross.
After two rec league games, we went to the UNC vs Duke baseball game on campus. The Carolina Kids Club members got to do all the jobs of running the game at “Kids Take Over the Bosh,” a reference to Boshamer Stadium. Here’s Grace taking tickets at the gate.
Peter was the PA Announcer in the bottom of the 6th inning. Carolina scored 3 runs and had a great inning. Peter called all 9 batters in the rotation and did a great job. He spoke clearly and loudly.
