Tonight, we played the #2 team in the league. We were neck and neck until the 7 inning (overtime.) It was 10-10 in the sixth inning and the other team was up to bat. We held them to no runs. We came up to bat and just needed one run to win. We had one of our power hitters up to bat. He sailed it to the outfield and got a triple. One of our weaker batters was up next. He hit a soft hit to third and our third ran home and scored the winning run. 11-10 was the end score. WE WON!! That win put our team in 2nd place and the other team in 3rd place. Saturday we will play the #1 team in the league. If we beat them, we will be tied for 1st place.
It is unbelievable how exciting it is to watch 7 and 8-year-old children play baseball. If we get this excited now, think of how excited we will be when they are 12 and 14-years-old while playing a close ball game. I am so proud of my little 2nd baseman and Coach (my beloved.)
God Bless you and your family.
