This year is my son’s first year of Little League t-ball. Last year we played a short season through the YMCA. It’s so fun to watch Jackson develop new skills and start understanding the game. Even though they don’t keep score yet, my husband and I were super excited when he threw the ball to first base and got what would have technically been an out. We’ve got a lot to look forward to!
