111/365 - Baseball Jamboree

Today marks the official start of the Baseball season. I know I've probably made that statement several times now, but today's difference is the teams actually play against each other in the Little League's "Jamboree".

But the coach refers to today's games as "practice games" (they are just 3 inning games), so there may be yet another "official start of Baseball Season" on Tuesday, when the Cyclones play their first "real" game.

Another element of today's Jamboree is the formal Team and individual pictures. Here are some of Brian's teammates, waiting for the team picture:

The actual Team picture:

Of course, the Professional Photographers also took the same picture and I paid $9 for a 5x7 print. Of course, I will compare my picture with theirs. I decided not to purchase any of Brian's individual pictures, because I am sure I can take my own, go to the Sam's Club and purchase the same trading cards at a fraction of the cost.

And I won't set up my shot with a big mini-van in the background.

Can you tell I am picky about some of these things? My philosophy - the difference is in the details......

OK, a couple more pictures from the actual games:

Brian, ready to steal from 2nd to 3rd base (which he successfully did):

The kids did a great job, learned from the two mini-games and split the two games - one loss, one win.

Spring has definitely arrived when the bats are out swinging! I daresay you will frame a better photo. Looking forward to seeing your shots through the season.

Um, you mean to tell me that the "professional" had the mini van in the background. Hmmmm....interesting!

How fun! I'm missing the baseball: neither Thing took a liking to the sport and so thus, we follow their lead!

I totally agree Shirley! I stopped buying the sports picture long ago for the same reason. I can do a better job. Csn't believe they set it up with the mini-van behind.

Oh it's so recognizing to read your blog. We seem to live so similar lives despite the distance.
We also have spring - "Northern Swedish spring" with some snow remaining. I could hardly keep my hands off the kids Easter Candy - it's no problem since I always get the pieces they don't like. For us it's not baseball, of course it's soccer!! And biking! The kids are biking to and fro on our little street with the neighbour-kids after. It's fun to see them discovering eachother again after the winter. Well, this wasn't a blogcomment - it was a novel. I'll have to learn the do's and don't of cyberspace sometime..
Big hugs
