Hey, Dad! Let’s * PLAY BALL * !!

–– Winter is Finally Over and it’s Getting Warm Out ––
I Want to * PLAY BALL *, Dad!!!!
O.K., Ryan.  Me too!  Let’s GO!!!!
Bye, Mom…!  Bye Hon…!
Here’s the Sports Complex, Ryan.
There are Five Baseball Fields Here.
That’s the Pitcher’s Mound.  It is Raised Higher than the Field 
to Make it Easier for the Pitcher to Pitch.
This is *Home Plate*
You have to Run Across this Base to Score…
but *Only* After Running across First Base,
Second Base, and then Third Base.
First, Second and Third Bases are out there, Ryan.
They are Pretty Far Away and Far Apart!
Here’s where People Sit to Watch the Game.
This type of Seating Area is called *the Bleachers*.
Let’s *Play Ball*, Daddy!!!
–– Throw me the Ball, Ryan. ––
A Little Harder and Higher next time, Buddy!
Why don’t you Put Your Glove On and Catch Some Balls?
Don’t Look Up at Me, Ryan!
You’ve Got to Look At the BALL at All Times!!!
That’s Better, Ryan!  Good Catch!
Here Comes a Ground Ball, Ryan…
––Y-y-yes…!!!  Excellent Catch, Buddy!
Wow!  Another One!!
You are Certainly a *Natural* Fielder, Buddy!
Holy Cow!
That High, Fast-Ball Nearly Ripped Your Glove Off!!
What a Fantastic Dive, Ryan!!
A Good, Aggressive Play, my Boy!!!
Now we Have to do *Batting*, Dad!
We Will, Ryan.  –But on Another Day– we’ve Played Hard Today.
Let’s go Home to Mom and Eat Lunch.
Well– I AM Kinda’ Hungry.
We’ve had a Fun Day– Huh, Dad?!
Yes we  Did, Ryan.  And we’ll Tell Mom What an Excellent 
*Natural Fielder* you are!
I’m Looking Forward to Playing Baseball with you Again, Ryan.
Good Game!
We had a Good Afternoon! Plus, there was a *Real* baseball Game Playing across the Street 
–and When they Were Cheering… it Sounded Like they were Cheering for me!  Hee-hee!!!

    You look great in your baseball outfit Ryan! Baseball is a good way to stay in shape and work up an appetite…maybe your Dad will take you out for ice cream after practice!
