Fall Baseball

McIver had the choice of either playing soccer or fall baseball this year.  He chose baseball.  The jury's still out on whether or not he's all that into it.  The good thing about Fall Ball is that it's pretty laid-back and lasts only 4-6 weeks.  Players are randomly assigned to a team and have the chance to play every position.  They follow actual baseball rules more than in tee-ball.  Unlike tee-ball, if they're tagged out at a base, they're out.  If a fly ball is caught, the batter is out.  The coaches do all the pitching and each player is allowed five (or maybe seven) pitches, unless they swing - three strikes and they're out.

McIver at bat during the first game.  He had a good hit, but needs to learn to watch the first base coach instead of watching his ball.  If he had been running faster, he could have had a base hit.

Getting ready to head to the field.
