My older son's interest changes frequently over time....
When he started Uni a few years ago, he signed up to the Kendo club at uni (and I bought him the full gears and paid for the annual member fee...
), was playing footsal with his friends (and I bought him footsal shoes as a gift to start uni) and belonged to a basketball team amongst friends.
Now they seem to have gone (he might still play basketball) and his latest "boom (craze)" is baseball.
After lunch, we stopped by at his place and played a little bit of throw in his backyard.
He had the glove on for the first time.
Oniisan throwing the ball.
Not bad at all! He's been participating in the training at uni since last year.
Teaching his little brother who has never seen baseball before...
We also tried a bouncing net to practice throwing and catching the ball.
It's not actually easy to catch the ball which is bounced back to you,
but Oniisan was doing so well.
But as the net frame kept being knocked down and fell,
the little one was asked to hold it behind the net.
Ummm, it is actually looking a bit dangerous, isn't it...
In fact, later when I was throwing, the ball actually hit my son (so sorry!) behind the net... Any sports must be played safely!
My older son says he will soon sign up in a team and start playing the formal games. I am so looking forward to coming and cheering him on at the games
Go, go, Oniisan! Go, go, xxx-chan!
(By the way, unlike in Japan, baseball is a very minor sport in Australia. You rarely (if not never) see anyone playing in the field!)ブログランキングに参加しています。クリックお願いします！Thank you for clicking the icon below for your vote!↓にほんブログ村
