City Champs, oh yeah!

The Tigers had an AWESOME season this year and since we were the Midway Little League Champs our team got to play in the Waco city tournament. Whoo-hoo! Let me tell you this was some serious business y'all---I had no idea :). There were 15 total teams from: Lorena, Robinson, South Waco, China Spring, Midway, East Waco and Lake Air, and WE were the team to beat!

My sweet friend Ashley and I decided to go all out and make Tiger posters, noise makers, personalized signs and of course balloons. Unfortunately this is the only picture I have. I have GOT to get a camera soon! The boys and parents loved it and we had the loudest fans by far.

Ready to beat Lorena #1 the White Sox

No problem! We stayed in the winners bracket, won all 4 of our games and were named CITY CHAMPS!! The very last play was a ground ball to Jake (pitcher) and a great throw to first, my Ryan!! I wish I had it on video. Ryan caught and the last out and then the whole team rushed him, while they were all holding up #1s. I am SO proud of these boys.

We had a R-O-W-DY crew at each game. I was so excited that all the cousins were there to see Mark do his thing. He honestly has a talent coaching these boys. To think where they started in March and where they ended up was incredible. They were very well coached!

What is it hot?...only 102~

Coach Wood, Coach Weaver and Coach Farmer getting some much overdue credit!

Check out that trophy. It now lives in our office :).

The team picture was in the good ol' Waco Trib

(Ryan had been mentioned earlier in the season as a leading hitter)


I can't really begin to describe how it feels to watch your husband pitch, and your son play in such an intense environment. It was VERY fun, but stressful, awesome and a blast all at the same time. Mark and Ryan you make a great team.

Can't wait until next year.
