Today was Connor's first baseball game of the season. He is playing machine pitch through our church's Upward program. So far, we have been really happy with Upward baseball!
He missed practice on Tuesday because he was sick and Tuesday was their first practice to use the machine for batting. So, he had not ever practiced hitting when pitched to by the machine. All of the kids had a hard time at first with the machine, but by the end of the game more and more kids were getting a hit. Connor actually got a hit at his first at bat and he was so excited! His second at bat was not as great (struck out), but overall, he did a great job hitting!
Connor played 3rd base, catcher, 2nd base, and left field. He really liked all of the positions except left field!
