DuPont Diamondbacks

So playing baseball in the freezing cold, sometimes raining, sometimes snowing, never sunny and warm weather is the closest thing yet to making me want to head towards sunny California. Our cousins are running around shirtless and we are watching Chase play baseball in our snow clothes! Poor Chase. He has been a real trooper, never once complaining about the weather. He plays with his coat under his t-shirt and jersey. It is an effort to stay warm, but in order to still be in uniform it has to all be tucked in. I didn't think he would be able to do it but he found a way to tuck in his big winter coat into those baseball pants. He takes hand warmers out onto the field with him and keeps is batting gloves on even under his mitt.

Chase is on a really great team this year. They are real go getters. They have won every game so far! That is Chase's favorite part. Unfortunately he is in the big boy league now and has to wear a sports cup. That is his least favorite thing. You should have seen us trying to figure that out. Where is Dad when you need him?

Loved the part about the cup. They tried to pull that one for the 7 & 8 yr. olds for soccer. I threw such a fit - they finally gave up. Bummer for Chase.
