I am not so sure that the other team got that same message. Summer baseball is a traveling league. We played against Williston tonight. I think their coaches probably agreed to give them all five bucks for each base they stole. It was insane. Unless our pitcher's foot was entirely on the pitcher's mound, the players were stealing. Connor has just finished his first year of farm league. What that means is that the kids were able to maybe sometimes squeak in a double. Once I saw a triple. Generally though, in farm league, the kids would wait at their base for the kids to finish
Connor did not really have a good time tonight, and that upset me. He was struggling and was really upset and hard on himself. He came to me, holding back tears, saying that he was the worst one on the team. That made me feel really bad for him. I hope that as the season goes on he feels better about the game.
At least he looked handsome:
