    Default Great Weekend

    DD just started playing 8u coach pitch this spring and made it onto the 3rd string All-Star team. She is the 2nd smallest girl on the team, but is fastest. Coach has her batting #1 because she almost always gets on base. They played in 5 games at the district tournament this weekend and she made it on base every at bat except for one hit when she swung early and knocked a grounder right to 1st. When she first started she usually would hit slow grounders towards SS/3rd or strike out. With lots of work with her batting coach and practicing at home she is now mixing in some good solid line drives with the grounders she normally hits towards SS/3rd. One of the games this weekend she started a rally of singles with the next three batters. Opposing team tried to throw my DD out at 2nd, then 3rd, and then home on the next three hits. It was really close, but she beat the throw every time. Really proud of her and many of the other parents comment on how great she is doing.

    Enjoy the ride. I wish mine could be 8U and start it all over again!
    Donít practice until you get it right. Practice until you canít get it wrong.

    Congratulations. I echo #7sdad comment. Enjoy every moment. I am glad for every night when she was young and I came home from work tired and she wanted to go to the indoor practice site. I am glad not because I may have helped her get better but just the time spent together. We still for out together now that she is 16 but it is different than we she was a wide eyed 8-11 year old.

    Yea, she has always been a momma's girl up till now. Often felt like I was just around for an occasional wrestling match. Now she wants to go play catch and hit with me everyday when she gets home from school. It really has brought us closer together. I wish we had indoor practice sites here. Texas summers are brutal.
