for Blake tonight. His team lost 4-3 in a very close game to decide who would go to the final tomorrow. It was a great season for Blake. He was one of the most improved players from last year and his coaches were THRILLED with his play. It was also so cool to see Blake's confidence in himself grow and see him and us BELIEVE that he is a great ball player. Ray and I are so very, very proud of him. It was so special to see Blake get a big hug from Coach Baumgartner. I would have been really, really sad to say goodbye too but Jack will be with these coaches for another two years and it will be so cool to see what they can develop and bring out in him based on their great results with Blake.
It's two more ball games at least with Jack, one tomorrow and the final on Sunday. Tomorrow's game is the last round robin game and if Bowridge wins they will finish the round robin undefeated which means the double knock out playoff is in effect. The team Bowridge faces in the final would have to beat them twice to advance to win the district. The kids will need to be sharp and focused as they are playing a very good team tomorrow.
I'll share some photos from this week tomorrow!
