My son will be 9 1/2 at the end of this current fall ball baseball season.
I just did a quick and dirty estimation on the number of “organized” baseball games that he’s played since the Spring of 2010 – between Spring and Fall Little League, Summer All-Star Tournaments and Travel Baseball Spring, Summer and Fall seasons.
Again, just making some simple and very reasonable assumptions, I figure that he will have played in at least 130 games (by the end of this season).
That’s pretty good for a kid who will be six months shy of his 10th birthday when he completes this Fall season. I don’t think that I played my first Little League game until I was around 10 years old.
Probably explains why he’s a better player at 9 1/2, now, than I was when I was 12-years old.
