Mid-Season Report

19149740585_012fdce1f5_zBrian has had a few more games in this season, and is really adapting well from tee ball to hitting off of the pitching machine. He’s getting hits on a regular basis, and has made some nice plays in the field. Most important of all, he’s having fun and learning a lot. We give the kids an opportunity to play every position, so he’s seen the ball come off the bat at about every angle.

Wow, what a little hot dog!

The posted photos are from two different games, all taken by his sister Lily, who has become his official photographer. His brother Trevor has also been helping out with the team, especially with the catchers. It’s always good to have us all together, and they can easily be bribed with Dairy Queen after the games. I feel very blessed to be able to coach Brian and the Cubs this season.

MLB Pitch Hit & Run

17328335243_58304db2b0_zLast night Brian’s age group of Sault Area Little Leaguers participated in Major League Baseball’s Pitch, Hit, & Run competition. Of course it was a typical Michigan day here in late May, with the temps barely above 40, and that ‘brisk’ wind pouring off Lake Superior, blowing the kids’ hats every which way. The kids up here are tough, though, and they all did a great job. Brian didn’t win any of the categories, but he made a strong showing at each one. He’s playing for the Cubs this season, and really looks good sporting the blue and red! Our first game is next week, but the competition sponsored by MLB was a good experience for the team.

And who didn’t pull up a little grass while ‘patiently’ waiting our turn?
