Victory Was Snatched From the Team's Hands......

And dealt Brian's Baseball team another loss......

Fall Baseball started 3 weeks ago, and I am only now starting to feel like we are "in the groove". I think that is because I have only attended two games, though.

The Fall season lasts for 5 weeks, much shorter than the Spring season, and the level of play is more advanced - for Brian's age group, the teams play utilizing a combination of "kid pitch" and "coach pitch". Brian is on the Sun Devils and (unfortunately) the team has yet to win a game.

Last night, there was a ray of hope - in the 3rd inning, Brian hit into the outfield and ran for a triple! Here he is on third base.



He eventually scored the team's 2nd run of the night, and by the end of the 3rd inning the Sun Devils were LEADING over their opponent, by a score of 4-2. At the top of the last inning, we were leading by a score of 5-2. We could smell a victory at hand.....

But alas, fate would deliver another loss, as the opposing team scored 5 runs. The kids were disappointed. BUT - we saw improvement in all of players, and they are starting to gel together as a team. They will continue to progress and most importantly, HAVE FUN while playing.

Here is a picture of the team:



And the kids having FUN:

Another one of the mothers has stepped in as "team photographer", so I cannot claim any credit in these pictures. It's been kind of nice not having that responsibility this go around. And I can feel good because she is using the same camera I have.....
