It seems almost funny to call it "fall ball" because the last game was today and the temperatures are still over 100! The boys each received a nice plaque and N hit another ball out into the outfield. He truly loves the game of baseball, and has very good skills for his age. I don't think there was a ball he didn't hit this season!
I've already looked into spring leagues for him and he is excited about playing in a better league. The boys have been playing in a Parks & Rec league the last 4 years, and while it has been a great experience, he is ready for more structure and better players so that he can improve his game.
I just love this picture I took a few games ago. You can see the concentration on his face, his eye on the ball, and the force of his swing. I just ordered a 5x7 and plan to hang it in the hallway once it's painted and I can re-hang our wall of photographs.
