BALL! me out to the BALL! BALL!

I mentioned in the latest bath pictures post about Will's recent obsession with baseball, in particular the Detroit Tigers. Well, tomorrow we are taking him to his first ever Tigers game, and we're very excited.

There are a number of teams that are more closely affiliated with the song "Take me out to the ballgame" (which is 100 years old this year!), but Will knows it as the song they play all the time when we're listening to the Tigers on the radio. Sometimes we'll be doing whatever around the house and have left the radio on, and Will will suddenly be all excited, yelling about BALL!s - it sometimes takes a second to realize that a commercial for an upcoming Tigers game is being broadcast (including some of the song).

The song is also part of a little book on the Tigers that our friends Jenni and Steven got for Will, so we sing it with him sometimes. Actually, we sing it a lot lately. Other than the hand gestures for "root root root" and "one-two-three strikes you're out", he's mainly interested in singing just one lyric.
