Gender reveal parties are very common these days and have become the new baby showers, with expecting parents throwing such elaborate schemes to show everyone present if they are expecting a boy or a girl! Usually they use colored balloons or colored cake or cupcakes, to reveal the gender. Well, this gender reveal didn’t exactly go according to plan. A simple task of hitting the baseball took a few extra swings!
These expecting parents decided to stage a unique gender reveal party. Friends and family are gathered in the yard, comfortably seated in their places while mother and father try out one neat experiment. They arranged for the soon-to-be-mother to throw a baseball at the soon-to-be-father to hit and reveal the gender of their baby.
The baseballs contain blue or pink powder inside and the plan is to hit the baseball with a bat, causing the ball to explode with either pink or blue smoke and announce the gender of the baby. First, the expecting woman hits a trial ball at the expecting father to see if the ball would explode, but the father hits the ball and sends it off to space, without exploding!
Next, it is the time for the real gender-revealing ball. To everyone’s surprise, the man misses and the ball falls on the ground. He then throws the ball in the air and takes a third strike at the ball! Three time’s a charm, as the baseball explodes and blue powder is scattered all around! It's a boy!
