America's Favorite Pastime
They played their hearts out and at one point earned 11 runs in one inning. Things were looking good until the other team hit a grand slam to even up the score at 13.
It stayed this way through the sixth inning so we had to go into extra innings. We came up to bat with no runs, then they came up to bat and the boys refused to let them score. We headed back up to the plate in the eighth inning and remained tied. It eventually came time for the other team to hit again and they managed to get one runner on base. Then the coaches switched batters and darn if that kid didn't get a base hit that allowed the runner to score.......
Game Over! Score 14-13 (we lose).
What a wonderful baseball game it was and the boys were just thrilled that they had icy's waiting for them in the dugout. They really kept great attitudes throughout the whole tournament and we couldn't be prouder.
They won't focus on this game for too long because they did qualify for the SC State Tournament that takes place in July so it's onto the practice field between now & then.
Here are a few pictures of my Dixie Youth baseball player and some of this week's fun.
