Take Me Out to the Ballgame...

so we spent half the day at the ballfields. Dixie Youth Baseball had their opening day today! Banks and the rest of the Texas Tech Red Raiders team started off the day with a parade into the ball park! It was so fun watching teams parade in by leagues throwing candy and cheering! Banks was real nervous he wouldn't be able to walk the entire way but afterwards said "It wasn't that far!" After the parade they had an opening ceremony where they introduced all the teams and coaches and then sang the National Anthem. All the teams in all the leagues were scheduled to play today - ours was the opening game for the TBall league against the Florida Gators. Banks played outfield and got to bat three times. The first time he made a run, the second time he got tagged out at third base and the last time, he was the ninth batter (he didn't make it home before they tagged home plate to signify the end of the inning). They ended up winning 26 - 9. Afterwards Banks and Mary Reese ate nachos and slushes and played in all the bouncies!!! Thanks to all of our family and friends that came out to cheer him on!
