  • What position does your child play?

    This is Brent's 3rd year in baseball. It's very competitive in our area. They have tryouts and evaluations even at his age (8 and under). We had the first practice on Sat. His coach has said he wants him to play 1st base this year and pitcher. He played outfield some last year and then moved to short stop. He has a strong throwing arm but I'm not sure he's got the attention span for 1st baseman.

  • Actually, it's probably better for him to play first base if he has a short attention span. If he were an outfielder, he'd have tons of time for his mind to wander. At first base there's pretty much constant action. I played first base myself, and I bet that he's consistent with his skills and that's why they want him there.

  • Interesting point of view. I never thought about it in those terms.
    I guess we'll see how it goes.

  • Very good point...that's so exciting for him. We aren't there yet...Tyler is playing baseball this year, so I guess we will see where they put him but it will probably be a rotating thing. Colin is playing TeeBall for the first year...
