This was our first season doing Little League. Ben played Triple A on the Royals team. Lane Shepherd was his coach and also works at Red Rock Canyon School with Joel. Ben didn't know a single player on the team and ended up with 10 new friends.
This was opening ceremonies. We had no idea what we were getting into.
Ben's love is pitching. He is really good at it but there is a kid named Jack Smart who is an excellent pitcher and catcher. So Ben didn't get to pitch as much as he wanted to. He was their closer. They won a lot of games because of him.
After 2 games the assistant coach brought new jerseys. They were camouflaged and they were awesome. They only got to wear them if they won the game before. Needless to say they never went back to the blue shirts.
He was schooled in the fine art of stealing.
Getting ready to steal home.
This is my favorite picture of my pitcher.
Our team came in 2nd place and they were a little disappointed but were glad that they had so much fun.
This was closing ceremony.
Lots of fun with lots of new friends.
The 3rd base coach had a fun time doing the "GO" sign as David would round 2nd on his way to 3rd. He's pretty fast too so he always caught up to the kid in front of him but tried to not pass him.
