First baseball tournament

Last weekend was the first baseball tournament of the season.  It was also the first time that H and I were home by ourselves since we moved here in October.  Jason left Thursday during the day and returned home late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. 

The first two days of the tournament were great for the team.  They won all four games and were scheduled to play in the championship game Saturday evening against the #2 team in the Valley.  H and I didn’t have anything else going on and were planning on traveling to the game.  Thankfully, the head coach’s wife was also heading down there, so we tagged along with her and her kids. 

The championship game did not have the outcome we were hoping for.  We did have two homeruns, but it wasn’t enough to even have a close game.  The boys never gave up during the game and didn’t seem to upset afterwards.  They have two more tournaments coming up, so it should be fun. 

H and I won’t be able to attend any games of the next tournament because she has a soccer game on Saturday.  Prior to H being involved in soccer, we were at every possible game and tournament, but now her schedule has priority over Jason’s games. 

Our schedule is very busy during the spring, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

First Baseball Game of the Season

Last night was the first baseball game of the season and we were late. 

Yesterday was also H’s first soccer practice of the Spring Season.  When her coach asked me if Mondays and Thursdays would be okay for practice, I said, “Sure thing.”  Of course, I forgot that the first game of the season was on a Monday.

When we arrived at the game it was the top of the 4th and we were down 2-0.  Then they scored another run, so we were down 3-0 going into the bottom of the 5th.  We were finally able to get a run on the board in the bottom of the 5th.  In the bottom of the 6th, we came alive.  We scored 12 runs with no outs to win the game with 10-run rule.  What a way to start the season!!

The team travels to the Valley this weekend for the McAllen tournament.  H & I will head down there if we are playing in the championship game.  If not we will enjoy, a few days without coach.  Next weekend he also travels (Thursday-Saturday) for the Kerrville Tournament.  I booked a hotel room in Kerrville for Friday night, but H’s coach told us yesterday that their first game will be that weekend, so I guess I’ll be canceling my room.

Things were so much easier before H was involved in sports.  LOL.
