I don't know about everyone else but i love sports. Especially playing it. some parents that are new to PKU may not know if a person can play sports with PKU but the truth is anyone who can swing a bat and throw a ball and catch can play. i started playing baseball when i was 7 years old. my dad and brother played against each other. its a great way to build hand eye cordination, muscular stength, and durability. when i was 8 and 9 i started playing with friends and we played it all the time. boys would understand it more. when i was 11 i finally joined a baseball league team. i didn't do that good because it was my first year. the next year i played i was average player and made a lot of friends. my third year is when i was the top player. my team went to the playoffs but not the championship. the next year is when i joined football. it was a great conditioning sport. i was very athletic and healthy. sports are very competitive. my 4 th year of baseball i went to the all star. so with PKU anyone can still play sports, be very smart, or very talented. i love sports and would never stop playing it.
