It’s a new year for Matthew’s little league baseball, and this year he is on the CCB Bombers, the team that won the championship last year. I don’t know how he got on this team but he is fortunate. Coach Charlie is excellent and he has already gotten the team playing cohesive and well. They had their first game Saturday and it was against Matthew’s team from last year. They won 12-2. Matthew got his dream to be the starting pitcher. He went two innings, struck out five, walked two (one in each separate inning), and did not give up a hit. Here are a few pictures.
Matthew on the mound.
As good a picture as Matthew is, he’s really not a good hitter. I think he’s afraid of the ball. I’m not sure how many times he got up to bat. I think five or six. Walked four times and struck out once or twice. He never made contact with the ball. Here he is looking good at home.
Here on second base looking lost.
And on third base with a sloppy uniform.
He did score there. It was a lot of fun, both for Matthew and his parents.
