HILLBILLY BASEBALL PRACTICE

STEP 1: Find a old GREEN water hose in the garage. Must be green and have leaky spots in it~I don't know why, it just does. (If you need one, let me know). Tie between two trees out on the farm.
STEP 2: Find a old gray blanket that you have been saving "just in case you need it" and throw the blanket over the water hose. Looks pretty good!
STEP 3: Take advantage of the littliest boy's love of the game and make him carry an old bucket of baseballs to the "field". If you need an old bucket, let me know, we have several.

Step 4: Batter up! The oldest, The Future Trooper, goes first as the Angel does the fielding and Big Daddy pitches. When the Angel complains loudly, you switch and let him hit and the oldest does the fielding (usually in the go-cart.)
NOTE: It helps if you are a pack rat and have the materials at hand; if not, you may want to pay $5 and hit at the batting cages in town. Happy Baseball!!

Too bad you don't have pictures of our family baseball games in Mema and Grandaddy's field. :<} Although we might not want those getting out. hahaha

GOOD IDEA ... I'M NOT A PACK-RAT, LEGS DOESN'T ALLOW THAT.

I WOULD NEED THE HOSE, BUCKET, BLANKET, BALLS, FUTURE TROOPER & OF COURSE ANGEL TO PLAY THIS AT MY HOUSE, MAYBE WE SHOULD JUST COME TO YOU FIELD & PRACTICE. CAN GIRLS PLAY ON THAT BASEBALL FIELD?
