Life is going to go into high gear tomorrow when most of the leagues have their opening day. Today I got hit about 3 or 4 times today. Those darn “soft” balls are not really soft when they come at you at 30 mph. Today was my first time catching! Ever! I usually try to excuse myself from taking her to her pitching lessons but I did not have an excuse today.
I was worried! I should have dressed in armor! Just kidding! I did get hit a few times. Even with a glove I could feel the sting of the ball as they hit the palm of my hand. My daughter thought it was very amusing as she started throwing more strikes! She had a good time pitching to me. Her pitching coach was being nice and not rolling on the floor laughing!
I survived and also learnt how hard it is to catch. I have a new found respect for catchers now.
