Round 1 is done and DJ's team emerged victorious. It was definitely their best played game all season - for once their fielding, pitching and batting skills all showed up on the same day.
Back to the field tomorrow night for round 2, which will be a bit harder as the team they are facing crushed them twice this season.
Either way, I think this was the most enjoyable spring so far in all the years he's been playing. The coaches were great and the boys had fun. Even when they lost, they had fun. Even when the coach was riding them hard in practices (most of these boys, DJ included, will be trying out for the school team next year), they had fun. That's what I like to see.
And holy hell was it hot out today. Last week I was complaining that it felt like September, and today I'm complaining that it feels like June.
