Re: 4 year old
My oldest just started T Ball this year. I watched the first game last weekend. It was painful. My son played short and first base. We learned four things last week:
1. Don't knock other kids down trying to get to the ball first.
2. When playing first don't stand on the base waiting for the ball. Opposing baserunners would get there and stop before touching the base.
3. Wait to swing the bat until after coach moves his head away.
4. The correct order to run the bases is 1st 2nd 3rd Home then dugout. Not 1st 2nd 3rd Dugout.
Whenever you get mad over a called strike or ball on a close pitch, it's the equivalent of being mad at the QB pump-faking one time before throwing a pass in your average NFL game. ---Caveat Emperor
