Getting A Win

When I was first approached about joining Miracle League Baseball with my son, I said no way. Nope. It will never work.

But my dear friend convinced me that it’s a blast and worth it and that I wouldn’t have the only ‘spirited’ child who refused to play.

So, we joined. And it’s been amazing for our family. I have made friends, been humbled numerous times, and laughed out loud.

Like tonight for example…

A young gentleman told me I looked like his grandmother.

The third baseman didn’t want anyone on his base and told Cooper and I six times that we were out and should leave. And six times Cooper tried to leave. It was a very confusing time for him.

Cooper hit the ball twice off the tee. At every base he double high-fived me, high and low, and chest bumped me.

Cooper sat on my lap at short stop for a full ten minutes and watched his show on my phone. And then multiple other players joined us.

The cleanliness of the equipment was taken very seriously as well. And the unsaid rule was don’t touch every bat. There were seven and all were different colors. Cooper touched every bat at least three times. A huge thank you to the volunteers who smiled nicely at us while disinfecting every bat multiple times. Sorry about that.

It was a good night. Good to get out of the house and smile and laugh and negotiate and bribe and reward and kiss and chest bump this kid. We needed a win.
