Batter Up!

A few weeks ago I picked up The ESPN Better Batter Baseball toy for Jacob at our Target here in town. This is normally a $40 toy, but for some reason Target had it on clearance for $19.98. I know, half price how could I pass that up. He was totally into trying the whole baseball thing out. He had never played before. With the visit to Indiana and then John coming to our house, Jacob had his fair share of baseball talk with John around. John LOVES baseball, he's played since he was Jacob's age if not younger. Getting back to the game, Jacob was really excited about us buying him this game to give baseball a try. He did great and he loves it. He's been asking everyday since Daddy set it up for him last week, to play it. This videos only like 40 seconds long or so. His last hit on the video is a pretty good one, if you ask me. He's just too funny when he plays, he's very serious. Below I am going to add a couple of pictures that Daddy took. Just take a look at how serious his face is. Take notice at that little vein in his neck, how it sticks out cause he's giving all of his might. Hopefully next year we'll get to sign him up for some sort of Baseball here in town. Can't wait, he's really got quite a swing going. I just hope he continues to like it as he really hasn't taken to any one sport yet like he has this one.

It was too funny when I set it up.. Seriously, as soon as I powered it up, loaded the balls, and stepped back, he had nailed one "out of the park!". I was hoping he would give hockey a try, but whatever makes him happy!
