Fall Ball Ends

29766854314_b7315fb03e_zWalsh Park-La Grange, KY:  It seems as it just started, but Brian’s fall ball league has come to an end. I’m really happy that he chose to keep playing, and I think he had a good time.  Honestly, I really didn’t pay too much attention to his team’s record, although I’m pretty sure they won more than they lost, and there are no playoffs.  He got a chance to play some other positions, also, finding he likes to play some infield.  He still needs to work on his throwing mechanics a little, but he’s fielding pretty good.  Brian had a solid fall season at the dish, also.  He hit well over .500, going 3-3 in two consecutive games.  After that second one, he was given the game ball by his coach as player of the game.  He had some good coaching this fall, as well, as they stayed very positive and stressed fun and learning above all else.  He’s excited to play next year, and spring can’t come soon enough.

Fall Ball

29453795356_43fd62a09c_zWalsh Park-La Grange, KY: Wow, I really love it down here!  It’s amazing that my son can play a fall sport without it being soccer or football!  The North Oldham Little League fall ball program is a good one, and Brian is having fun so far.  Not quite as many kids play though, so instead of team names, they just have colors, but the coaches have dubbed their team the Blue Sharks.  The fall league is more of an instructional league, with the kids being able to experience different positions every inning.  We’re blessed again with good coaching, and they try to go above and beyond to help the kids out with the fundamentals of the game.

Brian and I love the Little League Pledge!
