So, Brendan is on the Varsity (8th Grade) baseball team --- GO SPARTANS!!! They played their first game on Tuesday -- I'm not sure what was going on with the boys but the lacked the desire to play. Not all of them but most of them. Today was the second game but the first home game. They played Rainier Middle School (Note: I am not a fan of the coach!) - it was a rough game. It was the bottom of the 7th Rainier was ahead 6-2. Brendan was 0-1. There had been a play in the field the previous inning that he was still pissed about -- It didn't matter that a human wouldn't have been able to make the play all he was concerned was that he didn't! Silly BOY! Anyhow, Brendan was to be 3rd at bat.....3rd at bat...Yikes..all I could hope was that he didn't make the 3rd out... Brendan approached home plate -- I could tell he was MAD. 1st pitch thrown....ball, 2nd pitch strike....HE WAS MAD!! 3rd pitch - it was low - he swung - I cringed - BAM!!! He hit the ball at the tip of his bat.

At 1st Base with Colby (He played against him in Little League)
Running to 2nd
Waiting.....Waiting.....Waiting......(I love the look on his face)
Foul Ball!!!
And this is the last picture I have because a ball was hit and Brendan was RUNNING!!! He scored making it 4-6. His team won...bottom of the 7th the final was 7-6 :) I was a great day for baseball!!!!
