Last week was our week to play Alto. We had three games on the schedule, one of which was a make game for the rainout last week. I was a bit nervous b/c this is my home town. I know most of these ppl and here I was sitting on the other side. But I survived. I actually enjoyed getting to see everyone and after all it is Tball - it's not the world series. While our ump was much to be desired and we had a few disagreements about which rules were to be followed, all in all it was a good game. The little Alto team was a bit freaked out it seemed but by the 3rd inning they pulled out a 3 up and 3 down. Our little diva's pulled out a win.
Our make up game on Thursday got rained out again...so we played again on Friday in Alto. It was a bit wet but none of us really cared, we were ready to play! We were all thinking that if the Alto team that played during the third inning showed up to play all game today we might not do as well as we did on Tuesday. Since we were visitors, we batted first. All was going well, until it was Ava's turn to bat and she was hysterical in tears. All the coaches tried to talk to her, but she was having none of it...she did not want to play! Finally, I managed to waddle (yes, I'm waddling these days) out on the field. Ava said, "I only want to play tball in Troup. I don't want to play in Alto." All the fans were great, and so patient. I finally got her to agree to hit and run to 1st base as long as I stood at first. And from there, I told her I'd meet her at third and she eventually made it all the way around the bases. She even gave me a smile once she was back in the dugout.
The girls were so excited to see "our Becky" at the game. She got more than one hug and lots of smiles. :)
Grammy & Pa were ball watching fools this week. They came to the girls game on Monday night, watched a double header for Logan on Wednesday and were back to watch more tball on Friday. Blessed grandkids right there!
We had a great week in tball and are surprised to find ourselves undefeated in league play. We haven't gotten to play all the teams in our league yet so I'm sure there are more surprises to come, but it's tball I think that's pretty much the case all the time!
