I've attended 6 games in the last five days since it's the end of the season tourney time that culminated in the championship game last night. Though it feels weird saying it, but the Cubs won the championship 8-6 over the Red Sox to end the season 17-0!

It was a fun season of 2nd grade coach pitch with a great group of boys. Interestingly enough 6 of our players are 1st graders (including my son) who played up a year. They just didn't know how to lose. The semi-final game on Tuesday was a great example. Bottom of the 6th (last inning) two out and down by 4. They rip off 5 consecutive hits to win the game. Good times.





One of the few times in my life I'll ever gladly wear a Cubs hat!


Thought about adding this to the Summer Pictures thread, but wanted to make sure it got it's due. Growing up I spent many a day/night at the ballpark playing baseball. I would never have guessed that helping coach your kids is A) more fun and B) more stressful that it was playing the game!

Just wish my Dad would've gotten the chance to see my sons play. Baseball was by far his favorite sport and the one he was best at. My oldest (above) throws right and hits left...just like his Grandpa Rick did.

Growing up the only channels I could get to watch baseball were WGN and TBS. The Cubs and Braves are still my teams even though I couldn't tell you one person on either roster today. Never thought I'd see the cubs win a championship in my lifetime. Thanks for making it a reality!

Amazing how much funner it is to watch/coach your kids than to do much of anything else. I left a couple pretty good western Wyoming bucks on the mountain last year so I could be out in time to watch my girl's volleyball game. Strange times indeed!!
Congrats again.

Congrats to you and your son. My sons team is 12-0 and starts playoff this weekend. Looking forward to watching the end of minors unfold for him. I'm with you on the coaching thing. Fun and stressful all in one.

Thanks for the kudos guys! I know it's not typical HT fodder, but I have a hard time not bragging up my kids accomplishments. :D

Now on to more travel baseball and we pick up his football equipment on Saturday.
