A Homerun in the Eyes of a Five Year Old

Saturday was your typical tee ball day with the Sheetz Cheetah’s. Ty got his turn up to bat and we all stood watching intently. I will admit that he packs a wallop for a 5 almost 6 year old. However, I refuse to be one of those “mothers!” The boy toy brags enough for the whole family, which is not a bad thing. I just smile ear to ear and think, “yes, that is my boy and I’m proud!”

So as the story goes:

Ty gets up to bat takes a few practice swings and smacks the ball down the 3rd base line, Coach yelled out “foul ball.” A deep breath is taken and the batters stance is once again met. Ty looking on at the pitcher with a serious give me your best shot look. The pitch is in and with a crack of the bat the ball goes sailing line drive up passed the short stop to the outfield and takes a bounce over the home run fence.

Keep in mind the players are to stop at first base, the rules are everyone bats and runs, no outs counted, no score tallied. Rules, what rules? At the moment that ball bounced over the fence my darling little major league prospect changed the rules. He tossed down his bat and threw up his arms cheering and thought I am king! Can you give me a whoop whoop, I am unstoppable!

He does not stop at first base, but continues to approach 2nd and 3rd bypassing his own teammates standing on 2nd and 3rd base until he rounds in and reaches home plate.

I have learned there are no rules in tee ball when that baseball is bounced over the fence and that is not a ground double to a five year old, it is a home run!
