Drew's Baseball Banquet 2010

Nathan, Drew, Trey, Zack, and Jimmy pose before entering the stadium!
It was a beautiful Sunday in May - hot, but beautiful! We were able to enjoy some great baseball on May 23rd when Drew's regular season baseball banquet was held at the Greenville Drive game! Our team, the Boiling Springs Bantam Huskers, was the featured Little League team of the game in their program "Field of Dreams". The parents had arranged this for our little guys so that they could run out onto the field with the Drive players during the singing of the National Anthem!! Drew had been looking forward to this since the middle of the season, and I am sure it is something that we will never forget!!Before the game started, we had our banquet celebration. Coach Jim, Coach Craig, and Coach Jonathan started by handing out game balls. As the game balls were awarded, Coach Jim told why each player was receiving that particular Game Ball! Drew was awarded the game ball for the game against the Tigers because he batted 3 for 3 with a home run, a triple, and a double and he didn't let one Tiger player reach 1st base!! Go Drew!!After Game Balls were awarded, it was time to award the trophies!! Drew goes to accept his trophy from Coach Jon Jon (who also happens to be his Uncle Jon Jon). One of the funniest things I've heard all season was when another player called to my brother "hey, coach Jon Jon" and Drew replied with "that's my Jon Jon, that's coach Jonathan to you". Jonathan and the player just laughed. Mikayla poses with "Reedy Rip-it", the Greenville Drive Mascot, before the game! Reedy also threw a t-shirt to us during the game!

Craig, Drew, and Ethan get autographs before the game.

Drew was able to run out onto Fluor Field with the Greenville Drive first baseman!!

Drew, who played first base for the Huskers this year, talks with the first baseman of the Greenville Drive after running onto the field with him.

Givin' Five!! Thanks for the memories #10! Our boy will never forget you!
After the game, all of the kids have the opportunity to run bases! Drew and Mikayla take advantage of this every time we go see the Drive play! Mikayla, however, will not run without her daddy!!
