I am posting after a long three days of baseball games. Zach's team played some SERIOUS baseball this weekend. This was a tournament where our boys had to play some outstanding teams. It was some close games and the boys had to play hard. Competition just gets more intense the older they get. I have to say that it's just fantastic to see the boys excel as a team. They played in a tournament where you had to qualify by winning a tournament during the season. It is called The Tournament of Champions. I have to say the teams were all so good. Zach's team, the STORM won the tournament. I have to say this was for sure our toughest competition. Zach caught the entire two games today and so I know he was so thankful when the games were finally over. I think what I'm MOST proud of is the sportsmanship that BOTH the teams had today that we played. It's hard on these boys to lose and we won the first semi-final game by only ONE very close point. During the championship game, we played an outstanding team. They played with all their heart and in the end, both sides of parents, players, and coaches were very friendly with one another. The other coaches made a point to tell Zach how talented he is. I thought that was above and beyond COOL!!!! They have a player on their team- Darius that is amazing. I love that Zach and Darius were talking. I think it is so important to teach our kids the importance of respect for each other and it only makes them better players themselves. Always love it when at the end of a LONG weekend of games that the attitude and spirit was positive!!!!!
