It was a big day for David on Saturday.  He finally got an opportunity to picth.  In the last inning of the last game of the season, he finally got this chance.  He did very well.  In fact, the coaches commented on how he should have gotten more chances during the year.  He was every bit as good as some of the starters we’ve seen this year.

The best part of his pitching was very few wild pithces, which can be prevalent at this age group.  He did walk three, but he took them all deep in the count and was just missing the plate.  He gave up 3 runs, 2 of which were unearned.  The team’s shortstop may be the best shortstop in the league, but he booted an easy one that would have ended the inning costing the team two runs.  Not to worry.  The highlight was yet to come.  Facing on of the White Sox’s better hitters, David threw three straight strikes.  The batter swung and missed on each pitch.  David beamed!  He was so pleased.

Maybe next summer he will get a chance to picth more often.

Daniel and Jim went camping at Lake Taylorsville.  A good time was had by all, even if we couldn’t have a campfire.  Yep, no campfire at a camp out.  The Governor signed an executive order making campfires illegal in state parks due to the dry conditions across the state.   We did have fun.  His troop has a bunch of good kids in it.
