Baseball Begins, aka Nick's First Post

The Mister of this Everyday Eason blog has decided to grace the interwebs with his very first post.  Enjoy!


On Saturday we started a chapter of our lives that won’t end for the next 17 or so years, Carter started Baseball. Now this wasn’t full on we are getting uniforms and hats and joining a T-ball team, this was a little different and a little scarier. Carter went to a local Baseball Training Facility, Frozen Ropes, to take lessons. This is a place that for the low, low price of thousands of dollars a year, your child can take instructions from some of the best in the business. Here is the scary part…..our 3 year old could be taking lessons till he is 18. 15 years of lessons! (Luckily Carter-man’s Daddy knows the owners.)

The first day was fantastic. Carter, a long time Daycare and Stretch-and-grow attendee, listened to Coach TJ very well and was following instructions to a T. First they had to stretch it out.

Then “Catch” a bean bag after yelling out what color it was.

Some bunny hopping and throwing...

And finally running the bases.

Carter seemed to have a really good time and was hyped up about baseball afterward. (Brings a tear to my eye.) We went down to the baseball fields afterwards to watch some kids play and have a hotdog. So day one is gone just 5,399 more days of baseball training to go.
