After last night it is official. "Fall"ball is over, I use the term fall loosely, mainly because the TN heat made it feel more like middle of the summer baseball. Last night was the only game that felt the least bit of fall.
Abby ended her season last Thursday night. Shane was an awesome head coach again and had a couple brave dads helping him out. I with the help of a couple other moms manned the dugout and that is a feat in itself-just picture it 13 four yr olds hopped up on Gatorade:)
We had a party after her last game and coach daddy handed out trophies, the name tag was for the dugout I am all about assigned seating in there it helps keep the chaos in check.
Wyatt was very excited at last night's game when he got to make his big pitching debut.
He did well struck out a couple players and only hit one:) it was rather funny cause the kid ducked and it hit him on the top of his head (he had on helmet so he was ok) I only think it was funny cause he kinda got his revenge. He was hit during the season more than once, in fact I think it was more like 6 times! He got hit twice in one game! He also got hit last night, it really just became normal for him to get hit and take his base.
So now Shane will come home from work and we will be like "what do we do now" cause we have been at the ballpark every night the past few weeks.
We have decided to throw our hat into the travel ball game with Wyatt next spring. Shane and a couple other guys are gonna get a team together. We won't go all out and just will play local stuff so no real travel involved. I am most excited for him to play a tournament in our home town on the same fields Shane grew up playing on. Can't wait to show him our old stomping grounds as we both spent many of hours running around that ball park.
We really need to figure out how to stay busy to pass the days until DISNEY!!
