PHOTO OF THE WEEK #11 - Paying Attention

Well, a week ago was Ben's ball league's season ending tournament.  His team was awesome this year.  The team was a mixture of kids who had never played ball before, had been playing since T-ball, girls, boys and one who was too young for the division but was an amazing player (and I think paid the most attention on the field!).  But with all of the practicing the coaches did with them, along with the support of their parents, all of the kids improved in all aspects of the game.....even in the paying attention part.  haha (...which is important if you don't want to get hit by the ball or if you want to make some great plays!)

By the end of the season they were hitting well, making some plays in the field and I think Ben was even running a wee bit faster around the bases.  He felt bad during one game when he got a player out at second base who was from the T-ball division as she was filling in a spot on the Jr. B. team they were playing against.

Ben's team went 14-2 in the regular season.  The games during the final weekend tournament were great games and really fun to watch.  They ended up not only coming in first in the season, but also at the tournament.  It's the first time for Ben, so was quite exciting.  And.....it was also the first time I had ever missed the awards ceremony where they got their trophies, as I had to work.  I did ask Paul to take some pictures with Ben's camera, which he did...........  I gave him a 6 out of 10 for quality and Ben gave him a 1 or 2 I think.  LOL  It's not entirely Paul's fault though, as Ben had some funky setting on his camera and wouldn't change it.  But even though a lot of the photos are blurry, you can still see the big smiles on all of the kid's faces.  :)

So here's a picture from the tournament where it actually looks like Ben is paying attention.  I'm sure he can hear coach Ted's voice from the outfield.... "Eyes on the ball, glove in front, pay attention"  Heck!  He even looks like a ball player in this photo.  LOL
