Rivercats T-ball

Zachary had a great year in t-ball. (His last year!) His team was called the Rivercats. He really improved so much from last year. We love watching him and he loves playing!

I never do get over how cute he looks all decked out in his uniform! Big throw!

Giving his buddy, Zack Tyler, some direction

World's Best Daddy---World's Best T-ball Coach A little last minute prep talk
Lining up
Great hit!

Highlights from this season that I don't want to forget:
Zachary hit his first (in the park) homerun this season. When he rounded third to come home he had the biggest smile on his face. I have never seen him so proud of himself. He received the game ball as a result of his great hit. After the game we walked over to the other fields and told EVERYONE we came in contact with about his homer. We discussed it play by play on the car ride home. We called and text every person he could think of to tell. When we got home and he got in the bathtub he asked, "Why have y'all quit talking about my homerun?!" :)
The next morning on the way to school he said, "Mamma, let's talk about my homerun some more."
Zachary caught several fly balls, line drives and made an unassisted double play this season, too. After the double play (caught a line drive and tagged a runner who didn't tag up) he and the first baseman celebrated so much that they almost missed the next batter's hit!
Brandon said all season that Trent was going to get some playing time during the last game. He practices with Zachary all the time and was ready!!

He started off in the outfield. He got tired after the first batter and decided to hang up his hat....
And take a little break. But when it was time for his at bat, he was pumped up! He could hardly wait his turn!
He hit a hard hit all the way into the outfield!
And he was off.....
High five from Coach David at his arrival at first.
Run, run, run!
"I'm biggest as my brother."
My three favorite guys. I am so blessed.
