My Jedi took a leap this year and dove into little league. He had a talented team, a kind and patient coach, and a whole bunch of family members by his side.
As we got ready for our first game, Strider surprised me with my own Yankee cap. It was so sweet! I was giddy with each game, and quickly grew to love being at the ballpark. At the end of the season I wanted another month :) All the grandparents and some aunts and uncles were regluars at the games too.
Starting at almost 10 years old, he had a lot of catching up to do. After working really hard and improving his swing, he had a couple hits in one game and was given the game ball! That was one happy kid.
He improved a bunch over the course of the season. And thanks to the great veteran members of the team, they headed into the playoffs undefeated...and won the championship!
