Out with a bang...

Well, the tournament is finally over. The FCLL Minor League All Stars competed in their final game last night. They took on Brunswick Little League Minors All Stars. After an hour delay to repair the field from severe rain earlier in the evening, the game began. The team didn't do bad and on some occasions the decision of the umpires could have gone either way which may not have changed the outcome, but would have made the game that much closer. After 4 innings of play, the game was suspended for lightning. Due to the fact that a serious storm was on the way and there were several flashes of lightning, the game was called. The final score...Brunswick LL 10, FCLL 1. Our kids did not win, but they gave their all. Looking back the kids did well facing two older more experienced teams. I think they learned alot and had a great time. We look forward to a break from baseball. At least for a month...then fall ball starts.

Tournament Time...

It has been a long time since my last post. I guess that is because week to week it has been baseball, baseball, baseball. I guess you could say our life has been consumed with baseball. Griffin has played over 25 games this season between his regular games and his travel games. At age 8 (league age) this is alot of games.

Griffin was selected for the 2009 Four County Little League All Star team. In Little League there is no sanctioned tournament for Griffin's age group however, FCLL enters their minors team into the Emory Frye Memorial Minor League All Star Tournament hosted by Brunswick Little League. On Saturday, July 18, 2009 the team took the field. Although we did not know how the team would perform, they ended up taking both weekend games. Now we are in the "winners" bracket and are set to play on Tuesday evening.
I will try to update my blog as we go on.
