Last night was his 6th and final game. I was unable to be there and Griffin said they won but overall did not do as well as in weeks past. He said they only got in 5 innings which meant he missed an entire 10 pitches. This morning I checked and saw they did indeed win their match up and Sam Watkins (From Brunswick LL) had the top overall score. I found out later that Griffin lost the top points position by 1 point. Think about this...one more inning would have done the trick. It sucks to lose by 1.

Griffin and I spent Friday, August 21, 2009, in Williamsport, PA. We went with Pat & Charlie Ronan. Charlie plays in the majors division for Four County Little League. On the drive up there, it did not look good as the rain started to fall. When we arrived we found a great parking space in someone's back yard. $5.00 all day...you can't beat that. As we arrived at Volunteer Stadium the tarp was being pulled off. Griffin said, "It looks like they will start the game soon". But it was not to be. A few minutes later the tarp went back on the field. After about an hour rain delay, the tarp came off, the field was dressed again and the Mid-Atlantic team took the field. It was so exciting to be there for the first game. We watched a total of 4 games (or at least part of 4 games). In addition to all that, we found time to eat kettle corn, buy hats and shirts and take in the rich history of this great event. 2.6 million young people play in Little League making it the worlds largest youth sports organization. It is hard to understand the magnitude until you visit Williamsport, PA and take it all in.

Although the score did not reflect a "Win"...Griffin had a great time. He started at short stop and in the third inning was called in to pitch. He finished that inning and completed the forth inning as well. Griffin did not give up any runs during his first ever travel appearance. He then went back to playing shortstop. At the plate, the pitchers could not find his strike zone because he walked three times.
For some of the players on Griffin's team this was their very first competitive baseball game. In fact, prior to this some have never seen real pitching and or stealing. The kids did not get the "W", but the experience they gained is invaluable.
The Cannon's next game is in two weeks and you can track their progress by visiting their Team Website.
It is awesome enough to wake up everyday, but when you can wake up on the Lords day and spend a sunny afternoon with your family watching your son play...there is nothing better than that.

Family of the Month is a Christian Model in several ways. That doesn’t mean perfect yet, but stepping in the right direction. Jim and Maureen Gill are victors in and with Our Lord. Restored to life within and without over the years, they “race toward the goal,” as Saint Paul put it. They are active catechists with pre-school, and 6th and 7th graders, for at least 6 years. Young children (8 years and 6 months) do not hold them back, they involve them! Summer middle school camps (3 years), work camps for Habitat for Humanity with 50 - 100 youth (2 years) - planning, organizing fund raisers, etc. - supervising youth sleep overs, car washes, 5K walks, March for Life organizing, and on and on. Six years Jim has worked in the Kitchen for the Parish Christmas Bazaar. He has coached Little League and umpired their games. Jim and Maureen involve their 8 year old son Griffin in religious education class and fund raisers. They (all three) are also hospitality ministers at Sunday Mass. Church, Youth, Community, Family and above all, love of Christ Jesus and His people, urges this family on. Thank you for being in our midst. May mighty blessings be upon you. Congratulations, our Family of the Month, Brother Knight Jim Gill with his precious wife Maureen and children Griffin, and Teaghan.
