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.
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~
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.
