My boys did the Nationals proud today. Both of them competed in All Star games for the t-ball league.
My oldest was in the A game. This includes a t-shirt, play by play announcer, having his name announced over the PA when he came up to bat, and generally getting to feel like a big leaguer for the day. He had some good hits and got to play pitcher, right field, and catcher. Although his side lost, he was so happy and proud I thought he would burst.
My second played in the C game. After some confusion about whether or not he was supposed to be on that team, Owen settled in. He fielded a grounder at second and threw the runner out at first. He hit the ball well and seemed to have a great time. He got a pin instead of a t-shirt.
I wonderful day. A great season. And a shout out to the Nationals team mates that showed up to cheer on my oldest. And also big thanks to Mom and Dad for making the trip out from Michigan.
