Throughout his presidency and now in his retirement, Barack Obama has spent a lot of time inspiring young people and seemingly having fun while doing so.

He has been photographed visiting classrooms, interacting with kids on Halloween, and even participating in a game or two on the sports field.

On Wednesday, former President Obama surprised a group of local students attending the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy’s after-school program in Washington, DC. While visiting, he shared some encouraging words and even showed off some softball and football skills.

“If you work hard and listen to your coaches…I’m going be on the lookout for you,” Obama told the kids, according to The Washington Post. “You’re going to do something important. You’re going to make a real difference, and we’re going to be proud of you.”

Here are nine memorable pictures of Obama embracing his inner child.
