Tonight was the first baseball and softball game of the season. Of course both kids had games at the same time. So Matt and I did some major flip flopping back and forth.
Chris has really improved since last year. I think his confidence in himself has grown and that has led him to be a better ball player. Tonight he played 3rd base, short stop and right field and hit twice and struck out once. His age group is machine pitch so it isn't super exciting, but it is still fun to watch.
Emily did awesome. In fact she helped win the game. As a starter pitcher (she pitched her two alloted innings) she struck out five people and walked only three. Then in the 4th inning the game was tied –– 5 to 5. Two outs. A high fly ball came between third and short stop. Emily, who was playing third, rushed over and caught it. We had last bats, scored a run, game over. I can't wait to see how she progresses over the season.
