This was a great weekend, spent with family down at the ball park. We started off Friday night with a game at 8:30pm. We won that game by one point, keeping us in the winners bracket for the next day.
Saturday we started bright and early with a game at 9:15am. We promptly lost that game in the wet conditions, and weren’t feeling the best at that point. The next game couldn’t have been a more fun match up, because we played our other company team! We beat them pretty convincingly, but it was fun all the same. Now up until this point I hadn’t hit the ball very well. I was 3 for 11, which is terrible for me. I was in my own head and needed to snap out of that. Everett was my official bat boy all weekend!
He really wouldn’t let that thing go haha. Later Saturday we played one last team. We beat them by 26 points and we were ready to play again Sunday morning. I hit really well that game and the rest of the tournament. What was interesting, was that my brother’s team lost and now had to play us in that game. We got there and the nerves were there. I knew their team was good, and I knew we had to hit well to win. In short we did. We won the game by a few runs, and secured a 3rd place finish.
Next on the agenda was the team that beat us before. We again had to show up and play the way we did the two games before. We did fall short yet again and lost to the same team twice. we really wanted to beat these guys and didn’t get to. It just wasn’t happening, we had too many mistakes in the field and gave up too many runs. As far as my hitting went the last three games I went 11 for 11 with three home runs. That brings my overall stats for the weekend at 14 for 22 with three home runs. That is much better than what it was looking like at the start. We did spend the rest of the day watching that team lose terribly to the team that won it all, and that was fun! 😀 Everett was just chilling in his cousins little chair.
Watching the games and having a bottle haha. 😀
We finally got together and had a family picture. My brother changed his shirt to root for us when he got back to the fields. My dad was on the other company team, and Everett and I.
And finally, my main man and I holding the third place trophy! 😀
That was a great way to spend the weekend. It was full of family fun, and great food. There were highs and lows but at the end of the weekend we were all proud of what we accomplished. 😀 😀
