Storm Baseball



It's been a fantastic baseball season.


Alex has been playing catcher and really been making big strides in catching the ball, throwing and hitting like a monster.


We entered the league tournament in 2nd place (6-1-1) and won tonight--which puts in the league championship next week (woo-hoo!).


Tonight was great, but I've got to tell you about the game last week. We were playing a make-up game to determine if we would enter the tournament as the 1st place team. In a see-saw game that saw us get way behind & then catch up again, we entered the last inning down by two runs. W scored a run but they also got 2 of our batters out. When Alex stepped up to the plate, we had a runner on 3rd base. With two outs and two strikes, Alex swung and made contact with the 41 mph fastball. He hit a pop fly between short & 3rd base--and they missed the ball. The runner scored and we ended up tying the game on Alex's clutch hit! It was a great night!
