The kids had fun playing with my iPad in the evening.
Here are few of the 761 pictures I took through the course of 7 ball games.
The temperature at game time was almost 90 degrees.
|Getting ready for the first game.|
The first game was Friday night.
Gage made an unassisted double play by catching a fly ball and tagging first,
then he had 3 triples. It was a good night for him.
|Dad and Ev came to the game on Saturday noon.|
Here the boys are keeping them company before the game.
We had umbrellas that gave us a little shade, but it was H O T.
On Saturday, there was a close play on 3rd.
Gage tagged out the runner as you can see.
The other team claimed Gage pushed the runner off the bag, but the momentum carried him.
|Here is the proof.|

|Glove in mitt, batter in the dirt, but no one got hurt.|

He made a good save on this 'just a little high' pitch.
