At the end of last season, Jake said goodbye to T-ball. He also said goodbye to the White Sox. He's playing "Coach Pitch Baseball" this year. And while he's not wearing the Sox uniform, he's still playing with the same group of boys. We're now the Giants. That's right! With Jake playing for the Giants & Lila playing for the Dodgers, we're an all Californian household. And with his head of curly red locks, Jake's a little easier to identify in the field this year.
So what's coach pitch? In coach-pitch, each player is thrown four pitches. If he doesn't get a hit, he has three opportunities to hit the ball off the tee. There are three outs or five runs per inning. The biggest challenge in coach-pitch as far as I can see? Finding a grown up who can throw four consecutive good pitches to a 5/6-year-old. That's a pretty small & low strick zone! But our coach and our boys do great.
