BASEBALL SEASON IS UNDER WAY.WHENEVER IT IS ONE OF OUR PLAYERS BIRTHDAY ,WE BAKE CUPCAKES,HAVE A LITTLE PARTY AFTER THE GAME.CUPCAKES SRE EASIER. ONE MOM , ONE YOU NEVER SEE, EVER AT THE FIELD, CALLED ME INFORMING ME, SHE WILL SEE TO HER SONS CAKE.I TOLD HER CUPCAKES ARE EASIER, YOU WOULD NOT NEED THE PLATES, FORKS,ETC. SHE SAID IT WAS GOING TO BE A CAKE. SHE WANTED IT BEFORE THEY PLAY. I KINDLY TOLD HER IT WOULD BE BETTER AFTER, SO THEY WERE NOT FULL.OH SHE INSISTED. FINE.SO THE DAY OF THE GAME AND PARTY, SHE PULLS UP IN HER BENZ, PARKS IN A NO PARKING ZONE. SHE GETS OUT DRESSED TO THE MAX. ALL THE OTHER MOMS IN OUR JEANS, SWEATS,LOOKING OKAY TO FINE. WE OFFERED TO HELP, SHE REFUSED OUR HELP. SHE HAD A CLOTH TABLECLOTH AND NAPKINS.THE COACH TOLD HER SHE NEEDED TO MOVE HER CAR.SHE JUST GAVE HIM A LOOK.ALL THE PLAYERS WERE GATHERED AROUND THE TABLE, THE CAKE WAS HUGE.SOME DID NOT WANT A PIECE NOW. THEY WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO MOVE.THEY SAID THEY WOULD HAVE A PIECE AFTER THE GAME,THEY THANKED HER.SHE STAYED FOR THE GAME,THE COACH CAME OVER AND ASKED HER ONE MORE TIME TO MOVE HER CAR.IT WAS NOT A FIRE ZONE BUT A FOUL BALL ZONE.SHE HAD NO IDEA WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT. HE SAID HE WOULD MOVE IT FOR HER, STILL NO GO.THE COACH EVEN SENT HER SON OVER TO EXPLAIN IT TO THE WOMAN.SHE WAS NOT GOING TO MOVE IT.DURING THE 3RD. INNING,THE BALLS STARTED TO FOUL OFF,MISSING HER BEAUTIFUL CAR.UNTIL ONE FOUL BACKED HARD HITTING HER CAR ON THE HOOD, SETTING OFF THE ALARM. THEN TO TOP IT OFF,A FOUL BALL COMES FROM ANOTHER FIELD BOUNCES,FLOP INTO THE CAKE.WE ALL LOOKED AT EACH OTHER, ALL TRIED NOT TO LAUGH. SHE GETS UP,SHAKING HER HEAD,SAYING "WOW, THIS IS WHY I HATE SPORTS, THEY ARE SO VIOLENT ". WE ALL LAUGHED,SO DID SHE.THEY STILL ATE THE CAKE AROUND THE FROSTED REAL BALL IN THE MIDDLE. HER CAR WAS FINE.WE DID WIN. IT WAS A FUN AFTERNOON.SHE SAID SHE LEARNED A LESSON,CUPCAKES WOULD BE BETTER, AFTER THE GAME AND WATCH OUT FOR FOUL BALLS.MAYBE WE ALL DID,IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT WE WEAR OR WHAT WE DRIVE,WE ARE ALL JUST MOMS DOING THE BEST WE CAN. THERE ARE ALWAYS FOUL BALLS IN LIFE ,IT IS WHAT YOU DO WITH THEM THAT COUNTS.

You are so funny. Youa are so right never judge a book by its cover. I agree life does throw us foul ball at times.The cake sounded great. Cupcakes are much easier.Have a good season.

You crack me up,it is so true.I have been coaching for many years played for many.There are so many people like that,guys as well.Your nice to bake the cupcakes for the team.Your also a saint not to laugh. She was warned by the coach. Lucky for her guys do not mind a baseball sitting in the middle of the cake.I've seen them eat a lot worse.I hope she shows up for more games, for her son.I've had several players that never have a parent, anyone there to support them.It bothers some.Thank goodness we have great parents that root everyone on, it helps.I know perants have to work. I have one dad that calls me every night after the game.He wants the play by play.It is tough.Keep baking .I agree watch out for those foul balls.Have a super season.

fabulous story. As the team baker, I can so appreciate cupcakes (we use brownie bites) and it's great to see everyone have fun!

What a cool story. We always have to bear the unbearable parent for the sake of their children. She may now be a good sport about things, If not she will always get foul balls.

I believe that the mom was only wanting to do the best for her son, it shows that she puts her best foot forward no matter what she does, but she has the grace and also the great ability to laugh at herself when bad things happen, especially if she was the cause of it. What a wonderful story and oh! how TRUE!!

Great story! So much to learn from it. As my Mother always said, "If you don't listen, you have to feel." Still true!
