Diary of a Baseball Mom...

Game 13: Wednesday May 12, 2010 vs. DodgersWe had a game at the Youth Baseball Complex...finally!!! It was a great night for some baseball!! Ryan was 'head' coach this game...as the real head coach was at his HS varsity baseball banquet and the other coach was at a school board meeting...so Ryan was BIG man in charge! Here is Colin up to bat with Ryan as the 3rd base coach.

Colin looking like he's ready to steal!


Brendan sliding into home....and he's safe!

Sadly we were once again not able to bring home a win...not sure what is up with our team...seems as though they have no heart...they have lost the last few and are feeling a little down. Let's get'em next time Indians...

Game 13 Break Down: Dodgers 8-Indians 2; 3 fielding errors in the 5th inning spelled doom as the Dodgers scored 5 runs. Colin 0-2, walk, run; Brendan 1-3, run Record: 7-6


Friday Night Under The Lights...
Game 14: Friday May 14, 2010 vs. AthleticsVery exciting night...this was our one and only game under the lights...game time...7:30 pm! Here is Colin up to bat...HE HAD A FANTABULOUS NIGHT!


Brendan rounding third...HE TOO HAD A FANTABULOUS NIGHT!!! (look at that beautiful finish to the sunset behind the mountains...so awesome!)

I can't tell...BUT I think this is Colin on first...needed to get a picture of the lights!

And here is Colin...HITTING.A.HOMERUN. Yep...that's right...IT.WAS.AWESOME.! (2 kids hit home runs this game)

And then to top it off...I finally got to see my kid pitch...Ryan said he had a rocket arm...BUT.OH.MY.GOODNESS...he was amazing! They brought him in as the closer (last inning) and he struck them out...ONE......TWO...
...THREE...and that's the way it's done!
I was one proud mama!!! Both boys played their best game this season...by far...and I was there to see it! They both hit...they both scored...they both played their hearts out! And we WON!!! (at the big field, no less!) GREAT GAME INDIANS!


Game 14 Break Down: Indians 14- A's 8; Brendan 3-3, 3 runs, rbi; Colin 4-4, 4 runs, 4 rbi, 2-run hr, 1 inning pitched, 3 K's. Record: 8-6

You got such great photos of both games. That second game looked so exciting. Your boys did great!

Good pictures! Our Red Sox have won all but the last two games, so it was a pretty big blow for them. Hoping to see a win Monday night...
