Spring baseball is officially over for Max. This was his first season of kid pitch baseball and I would say all things considering it went pretty well. Max improved in the areas that he wanted to, had fun, and in the end that is all that matters. There definitely is a learning curve to moving up a division and playing in a league that we are still learning but we are all getting the hang of things and will do some things differently next year for sure!
Max's favorite positions this season were pitching, catching, and playing 3rd base. He does great behind the plate, he moves well and does an awesome job of blocking the ball, he also has a pretty good arm and threw a couple kids out at 2nd this year when they tried to steal on him. He had a great time with the kids on his team and made a few new friends which is always a bonus.
Charlee and Christian enjoyed going to the games as well, even though we had some really, really cold and wet games this season! Charlee loved playing on the playground, eating suckers, and finding new friends each week. The only times during the games that I saw Christian was when he was asking for money for the concession stand. He had some friends from school that were always at the fields too and they had a blast running wild together. It actually wasn't as crazy as I thought it would be having both the kids at the games, especially since Clint was seriously out of town for most of the season, I think we only went to 2 games where both of us were there. Now we are on to t-ball for Mr. Christian (heaven help me!) hopefully we will have better weather for his season!
