Into the Depths: Proud of the Pride

Proud of the Pride

Brayton's team has had a rough season. We lost all three games in the opening tournament, and we've gone 1-7 in league play. For those of you who don't know baseball, that isn't good. Basically, we'd won 1 game out of 11 and that was a month and a half ago.

So needless to say that our first win on Saturday was a high. Our second game we played a team that is actually in our own league who had already beat us twice.....we tied 4-4.

Going into Sunday we all hoped for the best but didn't necessarily expect it. We were barely awake in the first game and only pulled out a win by bringing in two runs in the very last inning to put us up 7-6. It was scary.

Game number two; the team from our league that we tied the day before. Our boys were on fire! We whooped them 16-6. Then we headed into the 'ship.' I don't know if it was something in their lunch that woke those boys up or what but they were not going home with anything less than first place. We beat that team 13-5 and became the tournament champions...and took our record to 5-1-10. It was awesome!!

I'm hoarse...which makes answering the phone today at work a bit of a challenge. And I am so sunburned that I already have actual blisters on my shoulder.

But it was all worth it.

Way to go Brayton, you rock!
