While we were back in Mississippi for Mother's Day weekend, we went to see our nieces place in a softball tournament. They aren't on the same team, but were playing at the same time. Which made things interesting running back and forth from field to field to make sure we saw both of them on the field, and up to bat. Both of them played pretty good, especially since they had only had two practices a piece with their teammates this year before their first games. Of course, there was a lotta chatter and smack talk coming from both dugouts and on the field. But hey, isn't that what you remember most about playing ball when you were younger? Oh, and you can't forget at the end of the game — lining up to shake hands with the other team. The games we saw, Emma's team won by one point, and Hannah's team lost, but not because they weren't playing their hearts out! Both of them had another game to play later that afternoon, but they both lost. However, they have many more games ahead of them this summer! And while we might not be able to make it to any more of the games, I feel certain it will be entertaining for anyone there watching!
Have you ever heard the smack that's talked on the field during a game? If you haven't, just head to one of these games and listen to the chatter. You'll be giggling, and instantly taken back to your younger years of playing ball.
