Brooks' team was to play the UNDEFEATED green team on Saturday.
DA, DA, DA, DUM.
I think all of the coaches and moms had already resigned ourselves to the fact that the boys just needed to go out there and have a good time. I didn't really think they had a chance.
Before the game, the boys have their "bathroom break" If you can even call it that.
Hey, they are having fun. So then I look over and Reese has gotten in on it too, except he doesn't know how to be discrete about it. At one point his shirt was all the way up and his backside was visible to everyone.
I have to just laugh it off now.
This is pretty much how Reese feels about going to the games:
And so the game starts.....Brooks got a hit his first time up.The green team was ahead the entire game. Our boys were doing good though, they were keeping their heads in the game as well.....Or maybe not.
We stayed close enough to the other team through the game to not call it a blow out. We got lucky that the inning ended with 1 minute left, which means we had to start another inning. At that point we were losing 11-8.
Here is Brooks picking up his third base coach as he is heading toward second.His third base coach just happens to be his daddy =)
Brent has learned that he has to tell each boy as they come by "Touch 3rd, and then go home."Now for the exciting part. They were leading 14-8 going in to the last half of the inning. Our last two boys in the bottom of the order were up first. The first little boy has never had a hit in a game. Guess what, he hit the ball! The entire crowd was yelling "RUN!" He is only 4, and it took about as long as you can imagine for him to run to 1st. BUT HE MADE IT! I teared up! Then the next batter, who also has never hit the ball, got up and hit the ball! Again, "RUN!" Unfortunately he didn't make it to first, but it didn't matter to all of us. I again teared up. (He got the game ball =).
