A Freak On The Field!

I have turned into exactly what I swore I wouldn't! I am a baseball mom! Here lately our lives revolve around baseball: practice, and games, and camp, and tournaments. It is a never ending story! A few weeks ago Chance got a new bat, "The Freak"!! And before you think that we have really lost our minds and named a bat, we didn't do it!!! "The Freak" is the actual name of this bat. And just to prove it to you, here is a picture from the manufacturers website: The first night we had it, Chance was so excited that he slept with it! I don't think he has ever been that excited about anything. We kept wondering if The Freak was worth the investment, but this weekend it proved itself to us! Chance's 7 year old team, the Indians were in the tournament for the League Championships! We have a few players on our team who have been in a slump lately. A few of us moms even said it would be a great game, win or lose, if all the boys got a good hit! Well, leave it to The Freak! ALL the boys hit the ball outstandingly! Even the boys that had rarely had a decent hit, used the Freak and hit doubles and triples! We have been riding high since that game Friday night! Saturday the boys played again and it was a nail biter! We were down 9 to 0 in the second inning, but came back to tie it up by the 6th inning and squeaked out a win by one run! We have had an awesome UNDEFEATED season! Tonight will end it all! Chance plays in the Championship game tonight! I will be sure and let you know how it turns out! I have some great pictures from the tournament that I will post next time, but for now here is a a video Chance and I made of his season! ENJOY! (You might want to mute the music at the bottom of the blog so you can hear the video!)
