All the little details

We had a fairly good season of baseball. Here are some of the many things we did and accomplished this year. After March Madness, the regular season started. We played one night each week along with a double header on Saturday. April had the Pizza Factory tournament. It was bitter cold, and since the boys hadn't really gotten to play together as a full team yet, so were the boys. We went 3-1, but still went to the playoffs. Those darned Dingers beat us in the semi's, so no championship this time. The first of May we went to the Triple Crown State tournament. Again we came up short in the semi's. Next up was the Memorial Day tournament. As the case has been all season, the weather got the better of us being able to finish this one on time. We did finish it up in mid June with a Championship. Beating the Dirt Dogs 7-6, the Bangers 15-0 and finally (they aren't going to beat us this time) we beat the Dingers 10-7 for the big win. The first weekend of June we headed once again to Denver for a tournament. The only thing fun or good about Denver was the Rockies game, the parade of teams, and sitting in seats we weren't supposed to be in. The weekend before Cooperstown, we had a family fun get away to Yuba lake. The boys tubed, water skied, jet skied, swam and fished. We all camped out over night and ate s'mores. In mid July (after Cooperstown) we hosted and won our first Marshalls tournament. The last tournament for the year was the tournament of Champions. This is invitation only, by winning a tournament throughout the season. We finished the season on a not so great note. We didn't even make it to championship day, which has never happened before. I think the long season and Cooperstown had finally caught up with the boys, and they just had nothing more to give. For the season, we played 67 games, going 49-18. That is a winning % of 73%. Not too bad when all is said and done. Thank You to the Marshall Gates foundation for helping to make this a successful season. See you all next year!
