Play Ball!

Baseball season has officially begun and we couldn't have asked for a better opening day; 60 degrees and sunny. Yay! The opening ceremony was Saturday morning.

The team's first game started in the afternoon. Here's our coach supervising warm-ups.

Some of the boys waiting for their turn to bat.

Here's my boy at his first up-to-bat. He struck out. =o(

The action was endless even if it meant taking pictures of the opposite team.
A successful third base steal by the other team. Darn it!

Then he stole home from us too.

We have some good pitchers on our team. I caught this pitch from outside the fence behind the plate.

This is my favorite picture from Saturday. That's my boy up to bat hitting his first baseball of the season!  You can see the dust coming off the ball if you click on the picture to see it bigger. Way to go kid!

A shot of one of our other pitchers.

Yay! A run for the Rockies!

Safe! Another run scored.

It was a close game, but the Rockies ended up losing 5-4 in the last inning.  That's okay boys. We'll get em' next time!
