My All-Star

Check out my Benjamin:

Does he look like he is ready for the big leagues or what?  Although he played t-ball as a 4 year old, he hasn't played baseball since we moved here three years ago.  This year he played with our friends' church and had a lot of fun.  When that season ended he joined up with our area All Star team.  

Now let me be clear, when they say All Star they mean ALL STAR.  Wow!  These boys can play!  They can dive to catch they ball.  They make double plays.  They hit homeruns.  They are really good!  Even though Benjamin loves to be "the best" at what he does, I think he would be the first to tell you that he isn't the best, nor the second, nor the third best.  He is the newest and least experienced on the team. We are just proud that he is hanging in with something that hasn't been as natural to him as some of the other things he has played.

His ( and the team's determination) and great coaches have helped the kids to become a great team.  A few weeks ago they won the district championship.  This past week and weekend they played in the state championship.  After a week of baseball games and three hard games on Saturday they lost their last game to become the runners up in the state championship.  Although I know they wanted to win the championship they were still rewarded.  As runner up they represent our state in the regional championships in Florida!  Yup, that's right- they get to go to Florida!

We are proud of our little All Star and all of his teammates!  Go Team!!
