The Beginning of the Mound

You can see the chairs in the back yard

Baseball season is starting up and I was searching for the location of our practice field. It happened to be near our house. Since I was “in the neighborhood,” I decided to scroll over to see what our house looked like.

Based on the arrangement of the table on hte back porch, this photo was taken two summers ago.

That also means that those light patches you see in our front yard mark where The Boy & I stood when playing catch.

This captures the summer before the year he actually joined a “real” baseball team. We would stand on either side of the driveway and toss the ball back and forth.

As this was a new activity for us, and accuracy was still an issue, I stood just on one side of the driveway. (I’m the upper light spot). The Boy stood across the driveway (his is the smaller light-spot, near the red car).

Nowdays, I’m under the tree, and The Boy either pitches from the same spot, or does diving catches a little south of the driveway. (towards the bottom of the picture).

  1. This is cool Lar. And fun to hear how the baseball throws have changed and gotten longer.

  2. its cool (and a little creepy) that the satellite caught you two at that moment; in perpetuity on the internets…
