We lost... but we went down fighting!!!!

Those 11 yr olds sure know how to put on a show!
All but one of them were nail biters!
We lost 11 or 12 - 10 tonight, but it was an AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME
GAME!
They played their hearts out!
By the time I arrived at the game, we were tied 2-2 and I think it was the top of the 2 inning.
Then the opposing team racked up a bunch of runs, but we fought back until it was a tie 10-10 game and we had to go into overtime.
I was only able to breathe after a pitch was thrown.
We gained a player tonight that was on vacation and he was integral to the score.
He, Tony, made some wonderful plays in the outfield, and smacked the ball when necessary!
Alex caught well, and at one point, blew it on a bad throw, then pickled his way out of it.
I would have LOVED to have seen this little team go farther, but they did a great job!
Bravo to the coaches, Coach Shaver and Coach Galeotti.
They were the bomb!
Very upbeat, never say die, in it all the way for the kids.
Bill missed a Union Meeting for this game... that's a big deal.
Bill. never. misses. Union. Meetings.
Ever.
GT boys 11 yr old ALL STARS!
YOU MAKE ME SO PROUD!
THANK YOU FOR AN EXCITING WEEK IN BASEBALL!
