My oldest started tee ball on Monday in the cold drizzle. He seemed pretty nervous when we got there, since we didn't know anyone, but as soon as they started doing "baseball stuff" he wore a smile from ear to ear. It was worth sitting in the rain to see how happy he was playing baseball!
He's started hitting off a tee on his third birthday, and has preferred being pitched to since 4, so he told me I should have skipped tee ball and just signed him up for "real baseball." He does not lack confidence in his skills! I told him 5-year-olds play tee ball and he seemed ok with it.
