    Dodgers beat Yankees with 2 outs and tied up 7 - 7 .....







    I recieved some great news from my Son last night, when he came to visit me in the Rehab.









    Last night when David and my wife came to visit, he ran up to me and handed me a baseball.
    David then told me " Dad, I hit in the winning run with 2 outs left and 2 players on base "
    I asked him to explain and he said the score was tied up in the bottom of the 4th inning with runners on first and second base,
    he was up at bat and his coach said to him, David we only need a good hit from you to win this game.
    David says he looked at the coach and said, I'm going to hit this one for my Dad...

    He got up to the plate and the very first pitch was right down the middle about waist high, he leaned back and stepped into it and drove a solid hit right up the middle, over second base and into the outfield. The runner on 2nd ran all the way home and David stayed at first.....





    Game Over!

    ;D







    I just wish I could have been there.
    David told me the whole team jumped on him and he couldn't breath..LOL

    But I'll never forget him telling me the story and the smile on his and his mother's face's......I was proud beyond belief.
    He's truly turing into a solid little ball player.
    I'm very happy for him.







    Well the story ends,
    Dodgers 8
    Yankees 7......

    Glad to hear David had a solid game & drove in the winning run. He had a good game last time as well from what I heard.

    Are the Dodgers still unbeaten?

    Singer, they are now
    4-1, and yes, I heard he had a good game last game also.
    He's hitting much better lately and he's always been good with the glove. I also notice, he's enjoy the whole game and team thing much more now.
    Remember, he's a rookie, I guess you would say that anyways.
    David is 8 and in his first year of organized ball.
    This league is for 8 to 10 years olds, so I call him a rookie. This league also has girls on teams also.
    Teams are supposed to carry 1 to 2 girls, but the Dodgers have 3, and I must say, they can play some darn good ball themselves... But I did question the fact that there is a team " Red Sox " and they have no girls on the team, just doesn't seem right to me and this is the Dodgers only lose to the " Cheaters" thats what most other parents call them. LOL






    Figures, the head coach is also one of the leagues organizers....






    Marstc09,
    I only have one question though, 4th inning?






    This league has a two hour play time rule.
    Game ends at the end of an inning that is closest to the 2 hours, unless it is a tie and both teams agree to go an extra inning....






    Seems the average game is 4 or 5 innings long.

    Awesome story, Ned...David has such a great role model to learn from, it is no wonder that he has accomplished what he has.
    Keep up the good work!
