Stepping Up to the Plate

John has been itching to coach something for a while, and when no one volunteered to coach the 7-year old coach-pitch group Trent plays, well it was the perfect opportunity for him to "step up to the plate!"

Little did he know exactly how much work it is to teach 13 7-year-olds how to play baseball!  He has been to meetings, and teaching sessions, done research, etc. all in preparation for the first practice!  Luckily several other dads signed up to help him (it's very necessary when trying to keep the attention of 13 7-year-olds!).  The first practice was rained out, but we were able to get 2 good ones in before the first game this weekend.  So far everyone is doing well and having fun playing.  Here are a few pictures of the first game (taken by one of the parents with an awesome camera!)
