They Are The Champions!!

There they are! Saticoy Little League Minor B Champions - the GIANTS!

They WON!! In fact, they went undeafeated in the playoff tournament. Everyone was gunning for them but these boys pulled together and played some serious ball! We spent a lot of time at the Little League field, I mean a lot! And I grumbled about it at times...but the looks on these boys faces today made it all worthwhile. And now I'm wondering what I'm going to do with myself every night between 4:30 and 7:00 and all day on Saturday!!

Kade had a really great playoff series - his bat came alive and he had 5 RBI's - which I am told is very good. He even made a double play in one game last week. But for some reason the field umpire let one of the kids stay on base. The umpire was wrong - but he stood by his call - much to the dislike of the coaches, fans and players alike! So we just let Kade say he earned the double play!

It's been so much fun to seem him mature and blossom into a tough little ball player this season. He's already looking towards next season and the crack of the bat!

Woohoooo! Congrats Kade and the rest of the Giants! WTG!
I'm amazed how much my nieces softball team advanced this season too! It's so fun! I hope you find something to fill the gap in your schedule now. ;)
