McIver is having a pretty good time playing baseball this Spring. His team is 3-0 so that helps! They've won their games by a pretty wide margin thanks to some really good second graders. Last night's score was 17-7. McIver got 2 hits and scored 2 runs (after having his entire bench and everyone in the stands yelling at him to go back and touch home plate!). Needless to say, he was pretty pleased with himself. We just need to work on dug-out etiquette, namely, keeping your hands to yourself.
McIver likes getting geared up to play catcher...
... but he's not super good at stopping the ball.
This shot actually makes it look like he's trying to stop the pitch, but he usually leans out of the way and lets the umpire take care of getting the ball back to the pitcher.
