After battling all the way through the losers’ bracket to get to the championship, we lost 3-2. It was a tight game that we were capable of winning. As a team we probably could’ve hit the ball better. We had some really bad calls go against us too. In one instance the umpire behind the plate overruled a call by the man who was right on top of the action at second base. That was disheartening and led to their two runs. But hey–that is baseball. Andrew had a blast playing with this team. It really brought the level of his play up to play with players like this. Andrew made friends with lots of the guys on the team, and the coach–Jimmy Ward–was a class act. Andrew really enjoyed playing for him. I’d love to see Drew get a chance to play with these guys again at some point.
Here are some pictures after the game of the kids getting their second place trophies.
