Baseball

I hate it that I am not able to go to Oz and Brett's baseball games yet. If they were a little closer I would for sure be at some of them. Dad usually calls after the games to tell me what happened during the game. It sounds like Oz has been playing shortstop again this year and is also doing some pitching. I think he did a little pitching last year too. Dad says he has had some good plays and is hitting the ball well. Brett is playing left field and also doing some pitching. They played a double header tonight agaisnt Bishop Garrigan and the first game Brett got his first official start as pitcher. Dad said he thought he was a little nervous and the game started out we were down 9-0 but ended up coming back to win 13-9. Brett ended up pitching the whole game. Dad said once he started to settle down a little and everyone else started making plays, we got back in the game and Brett was fired up! I so wish I could of seen that! I am so proud of him!!! The second game we ended up winning 4-3. So with this being the first week of baseball I would say from what I have heard they are not doing to bad. Sometimes it takes a few games to get everything figured out and everyone playing together! If the boys are going to be doing some pitching this year I am going to be even more nervous, you all know how I get at games. I don't think either of the boy's really did any pitching growing up or did much in the past couple years so I am excited to see them pitch once I can make it to some games!! I believe after tonight there record is 3-2 and they still have games Friday night and Saturday.

Brooke? Nervous at games? NEVER! HAHAHA! Thanks for the update, I have been trying to look at the Sentinel online, but haven't seen any stories so far. I'm so happy for the boys and hope I can watch them in Des Moines again this year.

Heck I get nervous sitting at home wondering how they are doing! Dad told me Wednesday night that Brett was starting pitching and I was so nervous all day on Thursday!! If I come across any articles I will let you know or email them to ya. I don't think the Sentinel has covered any games yet.
