What a FUN baseball season we had this year! The Pirates might not have been on the winning side too often but I wouldn’t trade anything about this season. Maxwell improved leaps and bounds and truly became a ball player. He went from striking out all the time to being the 4th batter in the lineup! From playing outfield every game to playing first base! Most importantly, he LOVED it. He couldn’t wait to get to practice, was (and still is!) constantly asking to go hit and throw on days when there was no practice, and was always the first to arrive for games ready to get warmed up to play. He was dedicated and committed! I loved going to watch him play and was usually the loudest mom in the stands – I just can’t help it!
I also have to commend Robert too – he was a huge help to the team and pretty much had himself an assistant coach job by the end of the season! He was always willing to take Maxwell to hit and throw and that made the biggest difference in Maxwell’s improvement.
I can’t say enough good things about his coach – he taught them not only about baseball but about sportsmanship. He encouraged them and kept it fun.
I took my camera to one of the final games and got some great shots.
I’m incredibly proud of my ball player and all he accomplished this season.
Go Maxwell and Go Pirates!
