Brian back in Mariner blue

Walsh Park-LaGrange, KY:  Brian’s back with another season of Little League baseball, and he’s back with the Mariners this season (completely different team and coach, but he had success last time, so he’s happy).  The season started in April, but like most of the country our April was full of rain, snow, high winds, and all around crappy weather, causing many games to be postponed.  The boys are just now starting to play catch up on the first part of the season, sometimes seeing three games a week.  The Mariners are 4-4 as of this posting, so they’re playing respectable ball and keeping in the hunt.  A couple of games got away from them and I think they’re better than there record so we’ll see how the next half of the season turns out.  Brian is doing well at the plate.  He’s had four hits in his last three games, and has some RBI’s and runs scored thrown in there.

In the field he’s done well, but still frustrated at being stuck in the outfield most of the time.  The coach has talked with him and tried to keep him positive, but the season is warring on him already.  Hopefully he’ll get to see some action at first base sooner than later, as that’s where he likes to play and can catch the ball pretty well.   He’s got good coaches this season and they are very patient with Brian’s colorful roller coaster of emotions.  Keeping him positive is the key, and when he does well and has confidence he’s very productive and has fun.  If he can learn more about the game and let himself have a good time, that’s what it’s all about!

Here’s a video of one of Brian’s hits.  I usually get excited and don’t pay attention to what I’m recording, though…
