Phillies baseball

Connor had a great and challenge season this year in his first year in the 7-8 year old league.  He was drafted by a coach we didn't know and on a team, except for one, with kids he had never met.  It's hard starting a season when you and your abilities are not known but if anyone of our boys can handle that it's Connor.  He played hard, listened to his coaches, and waited patiently for them to notice his skills. 

 Halfway through the season he got his chance.  After asking every game for a chance to pitch, they finally put him on the mound and he shone!  Two innings, five strikeouts, no walks.  His coach actually apologized to us for not giving him the chance sooner and from then on he became one of the team's top two pitchers.

Even when the team didn't have a successful season as far as wins go he kept playing hard and always doing his best to help them keep going.  I am so proud of his work ethic and confidence and learn a lot from his constantly.

He ended the season with big smiles and new buddies and that is always a win!
