Last night was our first baseball game of the season. Whew!, yesterday was a whirl wind for M.E. trying to finish all the loose ends, hemming pants, upload info to the league website, gathering supplies, etc. It was a crazy day.
It was Buddy's team to play. I didn't manage any pics because I was keeping score and its alittle harder this year with counting pitches and kiddos stealing bases. We would lose 5 -15. They were a good team and we just don't have the experience they had. Buddy would bat once and dribble the ball back to the pitcher for an out a first. 65 foot base runs are long. He wasn't happy. But in the top of the 3rd he'd take the mound to pitch. I was so nervous. He faced 6 batters. Threw 30 pitches with 8 of those strikes, walked 3 and gave up 3 hits. I was very pleased and so was he.
The Man was happy with our effort and so we begin our weeks spent at the ball field.
LG has a tee ball game Wednesday and Thursday, and Buddy plays again on Thursday. Busy, Busy, Busy!
