Scorpions Spring 2018

Yesterday we had two make up games to play since we were rained out the weekend before...I almost thought we were going to get rained out again, but the fields held up so we could play! Yay!!! It started off pretty cool for game one, but by the second one we were getting a little toasty. And the mosquitoes were in full force, too - bug spray for everyone.

This weekend wasn't as victorious as last weekend, but at this level that is what's gonna happen. So it just means work harder, practice more, and get even better! This is a brand new team, too and only a few of these boys have played together before. So - next weekend will be a better one. And it wasn't for lack of playing and effort either - the boys all played great games! I was very proud of Aaron and how he played, as well as the rest of the team.

Aaron has become a great catcher - he really sees the field and is in-tune to what's happening and definitely is not afraid to send the ball when there is a steal or guard home when there is a runner coming in! I thought he'd found his home at 3rd, but that has become secondary to playing catcher now! So proud of him!

Batting against kids is a first for most of these kids, too. And the strike zone is pretty different from coach pitch! Aaron hit well yesterday and managed to send out a bomb into the outfield!

Sliding into 2nd - wet ground doesn't make sliding too easy...tend to hit the ground and stick so Aaron had to get that leg out there! LOL He was safe, though!!
