Brett (and us) had a full weekend of sports. Saturday morning was a football scrimmage and Sunday morning was the first game of the fall baseball season.
The Sluggers had a pretty good game considering this was the first time our team has gone up against an actual pitcher and it's the real deal...(lead off runners, stealing bases, running on 3rd strike). Our team was nervous and you could see the jitters on the field but I think the next game will be much better.
Brett played second and made an out by tagging a lead off runner with a throw from his pitcher. Needless to say that gave Ashton and Brett some confidence.
Here Brett's on second waiting for the throw from Ashton (pitcher). (You can't see the runner as he's behind the ump.)
Here's Brett putting the tag on him.
Brett was also the only Slugger to get a hit. He hit a fly ball between the right fielder and 1st baseman not a power hit but it was a base hit and gave him some confidense knowing he could make contact.

The stare down with the pitcher as he leads off.
Again it was a good game for the Sluggers even though they got beat 12 to 2. Can't wait for the next game in 2 weeks!
So Saturday morning we were up and out of the house before 8 a.m. for Brett's football scrimmage in Rose Hill. They played two games (40 minutes each). This was their first time actually making contact with full pads. You could definately tell there were some first game jitters but all in all the boys did great and we are all looking forward to this season.
Brett played linebacker, safety and right end. Highlight of the day was when Brett recovered the fumble in the 2nd game. We are the white jerseys (our actual game jersey's will be navy but they weren't done in time for the scrimmage) Brett is #5 and he's 2nd on the left. Brett holding his block...far left side.
