Drew hits his second home run of the night!! This was the only picture I took at this game - the rest of the time I was sitting on the edge of my seat!!
Today was Drew's third game of the season! Our Gophers played extremely well against a tough team in our division! At one point we were even leading in points. At the end, the other team won 13 - 7, but we are so proud of our team!! Craig and I were talking on the way home about how our team lost but we were still just as excited as ever! That has to do with how well our Gophers did! All that being said, what kind of mom would I be if I didn't brag on my son? Drew batted 3 for 3 in this game with 2 home runs and a single scoring 6 RBIs!!! WOW! On Drew's second and third bats the other teams' coaches were having their guys back up. Craig (who coaches first base when our team bats), even heard one of the coaches tell his boys to back up and pay attention because "this is their power hitter". Mommy was yelling so much, she surely didn't hear him!!
On defense, Drew also played well today! He got several outs at first base with the help of his teammates. Taylor connected with Drew to get a couple of outs tonight and Cameron connected with Drew several times to get runners out. One of the most exciting plays of the game tonight was when Cameron and Drew worked together to get our teams' first ever DOUBLE PLAY!! Cameron caught a pop fly and then threw the ball to Drew to get a runner out at first! We were all screaming for our Gophers - it was exciting for sure!! Way to go Gophers - keep playing hard like you did tonight!!
