Tuesday night Baylee had her first softball practice. The age group she is in is 6 and under. Baylee is the second to youngest the team. Most of the girls are 6 or turning 6 this summer. I had no expectations during this practice. My hope was that she would just listen to the coach and have fun.
Here she is carrying her equipment bag to the car. It is almost as big as her but she insists on carrying it!
Can you tell in this picture that her lip is a little puffy? During practice got hit in the face by the ball. One of the coaches was tossing the ball overhanded to the girls to catch. She was by no means throwing it hard but she threw it a little high and it hit Baylee smack on the face. After quite a bit of crying and asking if her teeth got knocked out she was fine. Her coach felt TERRIBLE! I was a little worried she would be done after that but she went right back out there.
Oh and after practice the girls voted on their team name. They decided on Pink Panthers.
