Little Slugger Camp

Yesterday Hud got to be a part of the Texas Rangers' Little Slugger Baseball Camp.
It was raining outside, so they were able to move the camp inside to the batting cages where the Rangers practice, which we all thought was pretty cool. :)

I was really impressed by how this camp was organized~the coaches were SO GREAT with the kids....really patient, fun, and did a wonderful job of holding their interest. Not easy with a bunch of 5 and 6 year old kiddos. They were awesome!
Hud said his favorite part was batting. I was impressed when he fielded the ball, and threw it right into the bucket (which was what they were supposed to try to do). Awesome. :)

I spent the majority of the two hours wrangling this little guy, who was royally ticked that he didn't get to play baseball. It's tough being the little brother. ;)

Is it just me, or does he look way too tough in this picture?

This is our friend, Breon, who works for the Rangers. Part of his job is to organize these camps, and he did an awesome job! The boys thought it was so cool watching him talk up there. :)

At the end of the camp, former player (who now works for the Rangers) Jim Sundberg spoke, and then passed out certificates to the players. Pretty stinkin cool.
We can't wait until next year!
