3 Days - 4 Games

Over the past 3 days we have enjoyed watching Devin and his teammates play their hearts out in 4 games. We lost every game, the first one was a blowout but, the remaining 3 were close. Most of the teams we came up against were way out of our league, talent wise. Our team was comprised of players who, for the most part, have never played baseball outside of Upward (a non-competitive league). Devin was one of only two or three boys with more competitive baseball experience.
Losing though did not get Devin's spirits down ... he loved every minute of it. Devin's last up at bat during the tournament, was in the pouring down rain. Devin came up to bat with a wave to the stands and a little bow before hitting a double. When he made it back to home plate, it was with the biggest smile ever and that's what playing baseball is all about!
