They were the lowest ranked team when they started playing this morning at 10 am. They won the first game after one of the other coaches yelled at the umps about one of our players not being at the field yet and we had to take an out. No big deal. We still won the game. Immediately following that game the boys had to play another game. Steve has been the 3rd base coach for the team since like the 2nd game of the season. He said the ump had to give the other team’s 3rd base coach a warning for arguing. Our boys played a good game and won 18-10, I think. After begging the head of the league for a break so the boys could rest for a little bit it was time to play for the championship game.
Let me say that our boys did not have the best regular season. I think Darrin, the head coach said that at one point they had lost 7 games in a row. The boys finished the season with like 5 wins in row before today. The team that they played for the championship was almost unbeaten in the regular season.
There were a couple of times when the adults got a little ugly on the field but things didn’t get too out of hand. It did get a little scary for Darrin and his wife. Darrin’s little 2 yr old fell on the bleachers and cut his nose open. It was a pretty bad cut and he probably broke his nose as well. They rushed him to the hospital and he is still there being checked out as I type this.
As for the game the other team did tie the game in the bottom of the 3rd inning so we had to go to the 4th. Our boys scored 4 more runs in the top of the 4th and then held the other team. So the final score was 13-9. The First National Bank T-ball team is the champions of the T-ball league for Overton County for 2008!!!!! They got a t-shirt and a medal for winning.
Can you tell he is happy to have won???
