Good 50º WINDY morning. Another 1/2" of rain yesterday and last night.
Yesterday was Tucker's first baseball game of the season. His team is the Texas Rangers. Tucker is catcher. It warmed to a not-so-spring-like 55º with intermittent showers and finally by the end of the game we had full on rain! Sami entertained herself with fence climbing....
Tucker was GREAT as catcher. He hit the ball, ran bases, all good! He really can throw that ball and with base runners on the move, he really did stay on top and make the right plays!
Jean and I held down the bench in the stands, Jen took pictures and was the 'team mom' in the dugout, Brian was asked to help out as a 'base umpire', Sami never sat still.... A fun afternoon. With all the hits and base stealing, the game ended between the Rangers and the Orioles in a tie!
LOL, from my friend Dale. This is really sad, but so true!
