Lil' C's last tourney

So 2 weeks ago Lil' C had another tourney up north. Almost 90 degrees outside. I should have sat in the shade........ oh well. Back to the boy child. He got the opportunity to play 3rd base. Even though this was a foul ball, he was ready, able, willing and prepared.

We won both games on Saturday. Doodle and I missed those as we were picking up Doodle, PIA and Spice Rack from their various locations.

It was down to the "championship" game. Now this is no laughing matter. We were going to be playing the other hometown team for the 1st place trophy. I really, really, really dislike the other coach. I mean R.E.A.L.L.Y. don't like him. I am not here to protect his image or his ego. .

Lil' C is warming up. Ready to take him on. "Put me in cold, I'm ready to play, today!" (Even though it was 90 degrees outside and he had just wrapped up playing catcher, pitcher and outfielder at the last game!)

Anyways, back to the point here. Last game of the day. Lil' C takes a stand and swings the bat.

He does get a hit and the game is underway! After a couple of innings in the field, he takes his turn on the bench like everyone else.

The game wraps up and............. WE WIN! It was very exciting! I know it is shameful and petty to be so happy that the other coach lost but who cares??? It is sad because I know several of the kids on the other team and I hate to have them loose.But it does not outweigh that OUR team won! THAT coach should not be teaching young boys how to play the game as he sees it. There are plenty of coaches out there that do a great job, he is not one of them.

Anyway, the boys on the team did a great job and all the parents were very proud of them. I was especially proud of Lil' C as he had struggled at the last tournament with his hitting. Good job my boy.
