It's Over

The season ended one game too early for the Tigers. One game away from playing under the lights. With an announcer and a large crowd. Playing for the championship.

They lost despite Avi's great relief pitching after Roni gave up an early run. They couldn't take advantage of a hit batsman and a walk, and they could never string together enough hits to threaten to score.

We were treated to one of the best little league plays you will ever see, in the first inning. With the score still tied 0-0, the Reds had two on and no one out. The ball was hit into the outfield. The outfielder got the ball, and threw it to the cutoff man, who fired it home.

Our oldest, the catcher, caught the ball, turned, and was bowled over by a kid who weighed at least 25 pounds more than our oldest. Our oldest laid on the ground, and held up the ball.

Out at the plate.

But now our season is over. No more rushing home from work to drive the boys downtown for their detroit games, and hurrying home to catch the Oak park games.

The boys received medals for making it to the semi final game. My middlest has been the bat boy for the team since game one. In a wonderful gesture, the league game him a medal as well. He stood their tyring to look so serious, while a huge smile was creeping in behind his stoic look.

It was a fun league. I'll miss the games and the people we met there.

Time to get ready for roller hockey season.
