These boys are very good little ball players, and because they are so talented, I think we often forget they're only 9. Actually only a few of the boys are 9, most of them are still 8 years old. It's rare that you see a team of 8 year olds who can play better than most 10 year old teams. These boys can and do on a regular basis. But, again, they're just little boys. They're going to make mistakes.
They had a fabulous 2012 season; placing 1st in the State of AR and 2nd in the Nation overall in our division despite being forced to play in a higher age bracket, and, lest ye forget - THEY WON THEIR WORLD SERIES, BABY!!! Now at the beginning of the 2013 season, we placed 3rd in Fall Nationals. I see wonderful things ahead for this team. Win or lose, I'm so very proud of these boys.
I know I've shared this before, but it so totally matches my mood right now... It's Finally Friday!! Enjoy!
