Hell to the No


Tonight was Spencer's first baseball game of the fall season. We had team pictures and as we hit the field to get ready for the game, my dad saw a mound of fire ants, then another, then another, then another, then another..... Right field was covered in fire ant mounds. There were several mounds along the fence. I ran and told the YMCA field manager and he had them put a tarp over right field so the kids could still play....but then we found out that the coach had reported the fire ants three weeks ago and no one had done anything about it. Seriously? Is it too much to ask for a field and a dugout safe from biting, stinging fire ants? Did I mention that this facility does not have first aid available?

Other than the fire ants, the game was good and the boys had a great time. Spencer really likes playing catcher!

The Y charges for membership . . . I would expect the fields to be kid friendly. They definitely need to do something about the ants!

I have no idea what Fire Ants are, but they sound nasty.

Look at your cute little dude!! He's ready for the majors....where I'm certain the fields are free of fire ants! Ugh!

I so love a man in catcher's gear!
