Seth is playing baseball

Share Button

We didn’t know what all to expect for Seth when he was born with Down syndrome. I’m not sure I expected him to be able to make good contact with a pitch when he was five years old. Whatever our expectations were, Seth continues to exceed them. In this case, he is participating on a baseball team with some of his buddies from church. You’ll note that he’s not nearly as interested in playing the field as he is in hitting that ball. In this league, the coach will pitch five to ten pitches to the players and if they don’t make contact, the tee will be brought out and the player will hit off the tee. I fully expected the tee would be the standard for Seth, but through three games, he’s made contact with a pitched ball twice out five or six “at bats”. The bigger point is that Seth’s teammates and coaches have fully embraced his participation and have cheered him along like all of the other players. Bottom Line: Seth is playing baseball, and that’s pretty cool!

    I could watch this 100s of times and never tire from it! It’s like watching the perfect illustration of the Lord’s sweetness, grace, and mercy. There’s nothing like it!!!

    Expectations are usually limited by opportunity. You have provided opportunity for Seth and God has brought so many along side to be part of and supportive of him to take advantage of each new “frontier.” Praise The Lord for Seth and using him to show Himself faithful in each opportunity. Just like with all of us, God has something special for our Seth. Can’t wait to see it unfold. Love my boy!
