Beautifully written post and absolutely spot on. Grandchildren are just the best. My grandson (below) is going to play a little soccer next fall and I haven't thrown up yet. I did buy him his first glove and baseball pants. I've been blessed to have our whole family involved with a summer college league team so it keeps us talking baseball all year, plus we enjoy our summer sons-one son is our GM, one is on our board, the first lady is...well, the first lady, and it's a complete family affair...and we really enjoy getting to know the families of our summer players. If there's a summer league around you, I highly encourage that you jump on board in some capacity. Baseball people are just great!
