Hello blogging friends!
My family and I had a restful and wonderful time at the beach. In fact, my daughter stayed an extra week with her friend, Briley whose family came down the week after us. A part of me wanted to stay too. I LOVE the beach! However, my husband and I had somewhere else to be…the ballpark in Knoxville, TN!
Our youngest son, Parker, (soon to be 13) is playing baseball for the Goodlettsville All-Stars. So, we left Florida and were State bound!
So far, our team has gone undefeated with no runs scored from the other teams. Last night, Parker had a BIG Night! Here’s what the Dixie Youth Homepage reported:
The Goodlettsville 11-12 All-Stars played their second game of the state tournament today versus the host team from Kingston winning 10-0 in four innings. Parker Campbell pitched strong innings giving up only one hit, striking out 5, and walking one. Campbell also helped his cause in the first with a line drive bullet over the center field fence for a quick 2-0 lead. Two more homeruns were hit by the lads in blue and gold with one each coming from Zander Jett and Aaron Pecenka. That brings the homerun total to 6 spread among six different players.
Tonight we added another victory to our side winning over Parkwood 10-0 again!! But that’s not the only exciting news I have to share.
Our very own Austin Franklin pitch a PERFECT game striking out 12 batters in a row ending the game in the fourth inning with a 10 run lead!
Excitement around here is bouncing off the walls!!! The boys are playing hard giving it all they’ve got to become the State Champions of 2009!!
