    Wednesday, April 3rd:  Practice for my 9-year old son’s Little League team.  I’m the manager.  We had an intra-squad game.

    Thursday, April 4th:  Practice for my son’s 9U travel team.  (I got to help out.)  Followed by a managers meeting at the L.L. HQ to review rules and pick up uniforms.

    Friday, April 5th:  Another practice for my L.L. team – handed out uniforms.

    Saturday, April 6th:  Little League Opening Season parade at 10 AM – followed by our local Pitch, Hit & Run contest.

    Sunday, April 7th:  First travel game of the season.  Forty-five minutes away.  (My son’s 9U team won, 6-3.)

    Monday, April 8th:  Our first L.L. game of the season.

    Tuesday, April 9th:  Another L.L. practice.

    That will be seven days in a row with baseball stuff.  Wednesday is an off-day.  But, I have baseball plans for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday after that.  (Practice, Practice, Game, Game, Game, and Practice.)  Then another off Wednesday.  And, the cycle repeats again.

    Basically, this will be my life through June.  And, I love it.

      It’s only the start, Steve. When my son was 13 and played summer ball, we had 11 games in one 13 day stretch. EVERY kid pitched, whether he wanted to or not!

      @ Scout:
      Wow. It can get crazy. My son has 27 games, including today, in a 64 day stretch. Throw in two to three practices every week on top of that…and, well, let’s just say it was never like this when I was a kid. But, he likes it. And, I’d rather see him do this than sit and play video games all day.
