This is the first post in our new series called A Kid’s Eye View. Does your ball player ever tell you funny stories about things that happen during ballgames or practices? This is the place to share them.

My boys, Andrew, 14 and Jack 10, have a knack for wanting to share stories at the darndest times. Like half an hour past bedtime and in the mornings when we’re running out the door, late for school.

This Morning

JACK (completely out of the blue): “A few weeks ago when we were playing that “Hurricanes” team, one of their players started peeing right there on third, like where I was standing!”
ME: “Seriously? On purpose?”
JACK: “I guess it was on purpose. I didn’t think I should ask him.”
ME: “So what did you do?”
JACK: “I was like ‘I’m not holding you on anymore!'”

Last Week

ME: “Awesome job out there! You got eight strike outs. But why did you keep having to step off the mound?”
ANDREW: “Because Hunter (the catcher) wouldn’t stop laughing at me.”
ME: “Your face was red. I thought you were upset.”
ANDREW: “I was trying not to laugh too.”
ME: “What was so funny?”
ANDREW: “I don’t even know. We just kept cracking up.”

    I was umpiring a game and there was a play at the plate. The runner was out by a mile. After the tag the runner was lying on the ground and looked up at me and said “Why did the coach send me?”

    My son, who was 9 at the time, balked because a strong gust of wind came up right as he was in his wind up…nearly knocked him completely over. Then, he almost couldn’t stop laughing enough to finish the inning. It was pretty funny. It is tough pitching when it is windy and you are skinny!
