Gavin just finished his Spring Season of baseball. He had a great time and met a lot of new friends this season. He fell in love with being short stop and still loves pitching too. He is really aggressive in the field which is strange to see on such a non-aggressive child. It was a long season with practice and games 4-6 times a week. We were ready for a break, but sad that it's over all at the same time. Here are a few pictures that I took of him this season.
One of his last games when he was pitching Frank was helping assistant coach and was at first base with the opposing teams coach. The coach went to Frank and said, "Man, this pitcher is good." Frank chuckled and thanked him because he told him that was his son. Then at the last game I was taking pictures and another team was watching our game and one guy said, "That Shortstop has got an arm." I then thanked him and let him know that he was MY son. :)
It wasn't the teams best season, but Gavin still enjoyed himself. He has decided to take a break from baseball in the Fall but will continue in the Spring. What will he be playing in the Fall???? It pains me to admit that after three years we have agreed to let him play tackle football. Let's hope I don't regret this decision!! Until next Spring...
Happy 9th Birthday Hank!
