This weekend JCBI made it’s way to Chesterfield, MO for a little baseball. The tournament got off to a rough start Friday evening, losing to the Muddawgs in a big way. Saturday however the boys played great, especially considering they hadn’t played a game in almost three weeks, with the exception of Friday’s game. Unfortunately the wheels fell off the bus again Sunday morning in what had to be one of the worst played games of the season. Sorry boys – I call them like I see them. At this age (12), so much of winning or losing has to do with who shows up to play – the boys who want it or those who’re watching the dandelions grow. You Peter, Paul and Mary fans know what I’m saying (Right Field). Fortunately the older the kids get, the longer their attention span and focus will become.
Pictures are coming, stay tuned. Show-Me State Games next weekend.
