Play Ball!!!!

In March Megan was called in for tryouts for the Major league.  Thankfully the coach thought she needed another year in Minors.  (Mickey and I didn't want her in Majors yet.  She'll get more playing time in Minors.)  She's with the same coach as last year and Mickey is again helping out with the team.  The first game was last Saturday.  Megan is a good player.  She made a few plays from second base and was 2 for 3 at batting with one RBI.  Her team won 4-0.  I couldn't believe how well both teams played defense, especially for the first game of the season.



The next game was on Thursday night.  This one was good too.  Meg went 4 for 4 with two doubles.  (She likes the high ones.)  She had 3 RBIs and scored 4 times herself.  I could hear her loud mouth in the dugout singing chats and songs.  She's really getting all the other girls into the game.  She played second base and catcher.  She had a close play at home but didn't get the tag but the important thing was she caught the ball.  How many people can do that at 9 with someone running at them.  Her team won again 18-3.  Mickey said the other team's fans were getting ugly.  Come on it's only a game.  I have forgotten the camera for both games so I have no pictures to post.  I think I've been doing this subconsciously so I won't have to scrapbook them.  Maybe the next game I'll remember.  By the way her next game is Saturday at 4:00 pm if anyone wants to come.  Then the Saturday after that it's at 2:00.

If you could maybe email us Meg's schedule we would love to try to make some games :) I told Justin about tomorrow but he will hopefully be helping Bryan with the ceiling in his kitchen in hallways. We will still definitely try to make it!

And this is exactly why we wanted her to stay in the Minors. She's a superstar in this league and in the Majors she would have been a supporting player who wouldn't have gotten much playing time.

Way to go, Megan. No spraining your ankle, like other family members in past softball games!

Awesome Megan! Keep up the good work- sounds like she's doing so great. Richard is proud of her. :)

Nice jab Janel!



I wish Richard was around to actually see her play, I'm sure he would have some good pointers for her.

I'm glad she got to stay in the minors too. It's nice to play but it wonderful to be a superstar! Like Daddy like daughter! Two great players and I've had the blessing of watching them both play. Sorry I missed the last two games, Megan, but don't worry I'll be back! You go girl! Love you!
