The End of the Spring Baseball Season

May 7, 2016 Caleb had a great season this time around.  He played on the Nationals and had some really good coaches.  Coach Chris was such a great coach for him in that he really built Caleb’s confidence both at the plate and behind the plate. He continues to excel at catcher, catching the attention of other coaches and parents.  It seems like Adam or I get a comment from someone at every game, telling us how good he is at that position.  He absolutely loves the action and competition. Coach Chris worked with Caleb and had him yell to the team before every batter where the play...

Taking in a Cardinals Game

May 29th, 2015 Adam’s brother, Luke, got us some fabulous tickets for the Cardinals game against the Dodgers on Friday night. We were a few rows behind home plate. Caleb had last been to Busch Stadium when he was 9 months old so, to him, this was his first Cardinal game in St. Louis. He was thrilled to be so close to the field and see his favorite player, Yadier Molina. Sumner and Jonah had been to a game before but it had been a couple years and we have never had such great seats! The Cardinals won and the weather held off just long enough for us to really enjoy the game. The evening...

Caleb & Baseball

Spring 2015 Caleb had a blast with baseball this year.  The catcher’s position caught his eye the Spring season of 2014 and continued in fall ball.  This season, his love for that position has only deepened.  He became the go-to catcher for his team after the first few practices and grew so much as a player!  A couple highlights for him this time around: He was the first catcher in the 7/8 elite league to throw a runner out at 2nd.  Seriously… everyone was out of their seats when he made this throw.  It was so exciting!  He made a name for himself in this league after that...

Fall Ball

November 7th, 2014 Caleb played some fall baseball and continued in his love of playing catcher.  When the coach held the very first practice, he told the boys they were not allowed to ask him to play catcher. (He’s done this coaching stuff before, obviously.)  Caleb was deflated.  He wanted so badly to play that position.  It didn’t take but a couple games before the coach told him to put the catching gear on and Caleb was played at catcher every game thereafter.  We will see how far he goes with it, but if his enthusiasm is any indication the sky is the limit.  🙂  We...
