This is kind of getting to be old hat, unfortunately.

Pirates 22, Marlins 18.

Actually, it wasn’t a “bad” game, considering each team only had 8 kids. I think most of the rest probably just assumed we wouldn’t be playing today due to last night’s weather. It was a pretty quick game, too. I think it only lasted about a buck twenty or so.

Ian grounded out to first his first time up (he led off the game, actually) and proceeded to scream “IT’S NOT FAIR!” and start crying. (I did think about it briefly, but decided he is too young for the whole “there’s no crying in baseball!” punk-out attempt.) After that inning he got his bat on in full force, as he reached base the next four times up and scored twice. Once he absolutely crushed it and hit a good solid fast grounder into the hole at short. So his hitting apparently is not much of an issue at the moment. Still gotta work on the glove. (And the attitude, but that’s going to take a lot longer.) He played 2nd, 3rd, and 1st today. Poor kid, he really tries so hard and wants to be involved, yet doesn’t seem to grasp yet the concept of covering his base. Oh well.

He’s a little stallion out there, and he makes his daddy proud.

    Ha ha! I can relate to the theatrics. My third son once mumbled “Did somebody duke that guy?” in reference to an umpire who he felt strongly favored the other team. My son had no idea what that meant, he’d just heard his older brothers (and dad!) say it before.
