Ethan's a baseball star

Ethan finished up his baseball "season" the end of July. His coach told me Ethan was "a natural athlete" and that he should continue to play baseball.
Here he is at practice

The coach would turn the sprinklers on at the end of practice which EVERYBODY loved!!

Here are a couple pics and clips from his last game-
Here he is warming up- I think he looks like Kevin Youkilis with his bat way up in the air like that. Maybe he'll hit like him too!! Every kid loves to get geared up to be catcher!
Here he is-
Shooting the breeze with the opposite team at first base

Here's a close call

You'll have to crane your neck a bit to see this hit

It was really fun watching Ethan play this summer and I will have to get him into Little League in the spring.

Way to go Ethan! I don't like Baseball too much, mainly because I don't understand it. But if Ethan is ever on TV I will make sure to learn the rules so I can cheer for him! One huge thing I like about the school system here in the US is the attention they give to sports. It was a lot like Japan. In Brazil it really sucks! So I'm glad kids here have this huge opportunity.

Woo Hoo Ethan! There was a big difference in watching the video clips from his games and the video clips from Theron's. It will be nice when Theron finally learn which base to run to and that the whole team doesn't need to run after every ball. LOL! It's so cute to watch though.

Ethan is so handsome! Love the trading card picture.

He does look like a natural. His poses show confidence. Wish I could be there to watch him. It will be fun to learn about his athletic feats as he progresses. Good show Ethan.
