Gavin really, REALLY has found his niche in sports. I am going to be surprised after this season if Baseball is not his sport of choice. He is a great athlete and really shined this year on his team. He takes it seriously too. He had the most OUTS, HITS, and RBI's on his team this season. He was awarded five game balls, and made many of the winning outs- three being double plays. He is fast, he can play every position and he has mastered how the game is played. He was really hoping for an out of the park hit, and although he was close, hitting the fence plenty of times, he never did it. Maybe next season. He got a black eye, swollen jaw, and bloody lip this season. He is the master at catching the ball, then running and diving to a base to get a player out....even when they are running and accidentally get you in the head. I swear sometimes I wish they wore a helmet the entire game. It was an exciting season though. He had lots of cheerleaders. Our families, neighbors, and even his teacher all came to see him play, and we are all already looking forward to Fall ball.
Happy Double Digits Hank!!
