At the beginning of the season B played first base and really enjoyed it. As the season went on she started to practice pitching and got to be really good at it. The few games she pitched she had really good numbers. Coach Reed also decided that she played a great catcher and she finished the season as our starting catcher. We had so much fun this year and had such a great group of girls on our team. It was fun to coach with Reed, but it was so rewarding to see Brooklyn love to play ball and continue to improve. Tate loves to play ball and was the star of his team. I think because he is so into playing ball he mentally just understands it. He always asks questions about different scenarios and where the plays would be. Tate loves to slide and typically slid whether it was needed or not. He pretty much always had his head in the game which is abnormal for his age group. Most of the kids tend to be in la la land but not him. It was so fun to watch his sheer excitement when he stopped a ball or got a great hit. Chad is an excellent coach and has quite the following. I think he had 14 or 15 kids on his team because parents requested him. He loves coaching though and Tate loves to have his dad out there.
Tate was really down on the day of his last game so I said hey buddy whats wrong. He told me he was sad that it was his last game for a long time. Poor kid moped around for like 2 whole days after that. I love ball season but have to admit that 3 to 4 games a week is plenty for one family. I enjoy the time off but cant wait for next season.
