Jason's baseball season came to an end tonight, as the 7 & 8 yr.old coach-pitch teams all played their final games. J has had a very strong season at bat, and tonight he hit a triple and a single. The coach treated the whole team to ice cream at Dairy Queen afterwards.
Next year he moves up to machine-pitch, which should should offer a higher level of competition. Even though Jason's skills are better than most of the kids on his team ( result of having 2 big brothers who played years of baseball and have coached him along since he was 2!), he never seemed frustrated, but cheered on his teammates and just enjoyed being out there on the field. There are other town leagues in the area that others prefer because of more "intense competition", but somehow that just doesn't seem necessary at this age!
