Southpaw or Righty

Today we started our day at the dentist.

This was followed closely by a visit to Safeco Field for Mariner FanFest.

Fan Fest is always a bit more fun when accompanied by a child, so we appropriated Carl’s current 3-year old for the morning. Sagan was reticent to meet the ball players, but really looking forward to getting onto the field.

And played catch with Carl.
This is where it was a bit difficult to determine whether she had a dominant hand.

Righty?

We started with her right-handed mitt, but she wanted to throw with that hand.

southpaw?

So we ditched the mitt and went to the south side.

Two southpaws (although the big one hits better from the right)

At the batting tee, she also lined up like a lefty.

And – because it is Seattle, and there is a BIG GAME coming up, this banner was a choice for pictures.

It was in the 30s and really foggy when we started.
This lead to some disagreements about whether fog was a cloud, or just fog.
(Try to reason with a preschooler)
When we left – the sun came out.

    My brother was a lefty and was a left handed pitcher and batter, but eats right handed. Some people don’t have a super dominant hand. I sure do! GO SEAHAWKS!!

      Yeah, my husband eats left, writes left, bats and throws right, and plays racquet ball moving the racquet back and forth (I was never sure if this was legal). Both of his parents were lefties, and only one of his brothers was right-handed. I am a righty but have always ironed with both, and prefer left-handed scissors (I think that has to do with dominant eye).
