These boys played so great. It was the top of the 3rd, though and the rain decided to put an end to the tournament...so we can back that following Thursday to finish off the game and we ended with a bang!!!
Bottom of the 6th (little league's 9th) and we were down by 2. Our 2nd hitter in the line up was up to bat first for the inning. Sadly he struck out and we thought Oh No!!! Then our next at bat got on base after about 8 pitches - he kept fouling them off!! Then our 3rd batter hit a double and was able to bring in the tying run! After that Aaron was up to bat. We had a pinch runner come in on 2nd base. We told Aaron if he brought him home that was it - we'd win the championship! Aaron first pitch he knocked it - sent it sailing over the in-field's head out to the green grass of the out-field to the fence!!!! Our runner came in and that was the game!!!!
Michael (who coaches first base) ran up and picked up Aaron - I was out on the field right after picking him up, too! It was such a great inning! It was a great game!!! We had so many great plays and I was so excited at Aaron's playing.
Sparkling cider bottles were popped and trophies were handed out - and what big trophies, too!! It was an awesome day! We followed up with a celebration at Craft and I think we closed the place down!
