What did we do this weekend? I’ll give you one guess! Yep, BASEBALL!
Maxwell had a game Friday night at 7pm (!). It was a late one but it was a FUN one! The Pirates played SO great and pulled out a much needed win! Our coach has been great to watch players develop and give them opportunities on the field as they improve. Maxwell got the chance to play first base on Friday night and he nailed it! He had some great catches and rose to the opportunity! We were so proud of him! He even got the game ball! woohoo! Then, maybe with a little encouragement from Robert, he gave the game ball to Drew who had two great hits and scored for the first time. sweet boy!
Frankly, I should have gotten the game ball. They had no one to do the scoreboard and no one was volunteering so I stepped up and did it – with Spencer and a very cranky Samantha in tow! It was an adventure but I did a pretty good job, if I do say so myself! I did have to get Robert off the field to take Samantha to the bathroom at one point, but, we made it! GOOO Pirates!
Maxwell had another game Saturday at 11:30 and unfortunately, the Pirates just didn’t have it in them. They played a good game but lost. Oh well! I had to miss that game because Spencer had a T-ball game at the same time. I was happy to be watching my little Red Sox player slam the ball and hustle!
Samantha thankfully had a friend in the stands and was happy as could be making important calls from the ballpark!
It was a beautiful spring day and after we met up from both games, we decided a little treat was in order!
Happy to celebrate my great ball players and their super spectator sister! 🙂
