Drew 7U Fall Baseball - the Braves

Our Drew decided to hang up his shin guards for now, and give baseball a try.  He was really good at soccer, but we were 100% supportive of him trying a new sport.  It turns out that he is really good at baseball too!  :)

Wade was practicing batting with Drew on the evening before their first game.  Drew hit the ball so hard that he left the imprint of the logo on the bat.  Easy, Tiger!  That was a new bat!

 Luke & Drew get to play ball together.  :)

 7U is Coach Pitch, but they have a kid play "pitcher" also.  They basically take over after the ball is put into play.  At this age, they wear a chest protector, which I appreciate.  :)
 Congratulating Lukey on his first run!
 Baseball is exhausting...
 We won!!!
 Drew's team won their first several games of the season.  I overheard a funny conversation in the dugout after their first loss.  One of the other kids hollered, "Who brought snack?"  Drew said (very matter of factly), "Dude, we don't get snack.  We lost."  Haha!

Lots of cute fans!
 Sweet Kelli brought both of her littles to a freezing cold game that we lost.  So sweet of her to brave the cold!  Wish that we could have given them a W!
 Meghan and Mrs. Amber came to cheer on Drew also!

 Drew's Coach's wife asked their family friend to come and take team pictures.  He did an AWESOME job!  My only complaint is that my baby looks waaayyyy too old!

 Is there anything cuter than a 7 year old in catcher's gear?  I think not!

It was a fun first season of baseball for our Drew!  He wants to play again in the Spring, so I would call that a success!  :)
