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!
"'Run kid...I dare ya!"
A little pow-wow...
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!
Making it to the 3rd!
Reaching for the ball with a runner coming in.
The 1st game he stayed behind home the entire game...2nd game he played 3rd for a few innings.
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!!
Home again, Home again!
Way to go Scorpions!!! Love Fall Ball!
