Red Sox vs. Royals

On Saturday was Alex's game against the Royals. Unfortunately the Royals only had seven players at the game and had to forfeit so it makes it an automatic win for the Red Sox. However, both teams agreed that they would play the game for fun. It was nice for Phil because he got to move some kids that might not otherwise play the infield in. Alex was very excited. He does rotate between the outfield and the infield. Alex had an awesome game. He is very close to hitting it off the pitch (he tends to foul them). He also got a line drive! He loved it especially since he's been practicing catching balls in the air. Of course he got the game ball! He was the happiest little guy around.

Rangers vs. Braves (Back to Back)

Friday night the Rangers (Logan's team) played the Braves. The kids did a great job and seemed to be on fire both offensively and defensively. Everyone was hitting and the team seemed to be in sync. Logan got hits at each at bat. What a great game on Phil's birthday. The Rangers and the Braves met the next day to battle it out again. Unfortunately (our theory is that the field wasn't wet) when they met on Saturday the Rangers lost. Logan did hit at each at bat but after his first at bat he was forced out at 2nd base. But it was still a fun game to watch since it was the first kid pitch game of the season.
