Today, the high was in the 40s, so they tried to keep things running smoothly. Besides a jacket, Anna June wore her turquoise velour sweatpants, a white long sleeved t-shirt, and her pink Milwaukee Brewers jersey (Granny had "LUCROY" stitched on the back). She used her new glove and wore her Atlanta Braves hat. AJ checked in and was assigned a number. She reported to the 7-8 year old group, as she'll turn 7 during the season. For this age group, the coaches pitch to the batter, but there is still a player assigned to be pitcher for fielding purposes. During the evaluations, She ran, fielded grounders, tried her hand at different positions, and took a turn at bat. There were 4 other girls who showed up to play. The point of the talent evaluation is to make sure the teams are balanced fairly - you don't want a team with only All-Stars or a team that never wins. At the moment, we are anxiously awaiting team assignment. AJ knew several children from school, so I am sure she'll be comfortable with whichever team she gets. This video starts as a slideshow of all the photos Ben took, and ends with a video of her at bat.
