Last game

Well, Corey had her last game on the 14th. She did well and played right field and shortstop. She was asked to catch again, but she didn't get to. We met the time limit. It was another hot game. I'm sad that the season is over, but I'm not all that sad that we won't be toasting.

Corey struck out one inning. She was devastated. I know that feeling, but it happens to everyone. Then, she hit another homer. That kid was beaming. The next hit she got she made it to base, but ended up stranded on 2nd. Then the last hit of the season, she hit to the pitcher who scooped it up and threw her out at first. I thought the world had come to an end. She did get an rbi for that though. She wouldn't listen that it was a good thing.

Corey loved her season and hopes to play in the fall. I need to make some calls to see how likely that will be.

July 10th

No pictures this time. Man, this game was HOT. The King Cobras were set to take the field at 4:30. We were out warming up as early as 3:45. The game didn't start until nearly 5:00. WOW it was a toasty one! I didn't play or even help in the dugout, but I was drenched. Corey told her coach she was sick and couldn't play catcher this time. Oh well. Her hitting wasn't as good either, but the girls did so well.

July 8th

We went to Tristan's (a good friend of ours) t-ball game. Some of these boys are going to be great later in their little league careers. One boy looked like a big leaguer when got up to bat. Never mind that he was the smallest guy on his team!

Tristan was great. He goes all out and gives 100% every time he's doing something. He goes for the ball EVERY time. No playing in the dirt for him. He loves this game and has a natural talent. I loved seeing him grab the ball and run for the base every time.

Check out this picture of him sizing up the guy on first. Looks like he's thinking, "I WILL get you out."

July 7th's game

Corey plays for the LGFPA U8 King Cobras. They played against the "red" team called the cardinals. There are some amazing hitters on that Cardinal team. One girl, Caly, is also a wonderful fielder. You have to love watching these young teams. This girl Caly was playing at the pitching position. In the U8 league, it's all coach pitch. So, this ball is popped up, which you don't see much of in this league. Caly caught the fly. Everyone in the crowd (even the parents of the "green" team) was yelling about how great a catch it was. However, she didn't know what to do with it once she had it. Beautiful catch, and lots of fun.

Now, on to MY kid. Corey played fabulously. She played secondbase and also right field. She's starting to really get the concept of going after the ball and really trying. Too bad there's only two games after this. Well, also, she got a home run. That was just great to see. She ran as fast as her little legs could go!

The weather today was great. Add that to a 7pm practice, and you can't beat it. Corey and her teammates seem to really be improving. Some of them are actually catching the ball and throwing. Hitting is also improving.

They have a game tomorrow at 6pm! I am so glad my camera is fixed. I haven't taken a single softball picture all season!

I've decided

I'm going to make this a blog of sports. Of course, since I only go to little league, it will be about that.

Now, Corey - my 7 year old daughter- is in softball. She had practice last night, but it was rained out. I don't like her coach all that much, so I'll be coaching next year. Should be fun.
