Mud Dogs First Game of the Season!

The opening game for the season, started with a game against Madison.... It was a home game played on the Embden Field. Hunter was so excited for this game to start. Before he got out on the field though, he had to pick a shirt with a number. Hunter decided to go with 4..... So for this season and probably next he will be number 4!

As you can see from the above photo Hunter got to play variest postions throughout the game. He started with the outfield. Then he played the third base postion.... I think he enjoyed that one, although alittle more challenging cause he had to really pay attention... And we all know that Hunter likes to stare off into space! :)

Hunter was getting really faustrated with batting, cause he couldn't seem to hit a ball all night. This is his first year of Coach pitch baseball... last year he was on a tee-ball team. So, its a bit different than what he is use too.
However dispite the frowning looks as he strike out variest times, he finally got a hit on the last time up to bat.. He bunted the ball just enough to be able to make it all the way around the bases. The look on his face when he made it to that first base was so proud! :)

As you can see here he thought it was amazing that he made it to that point! :) He was looking at me to see if I was paying attention to him in his big moment...
Plus he had a big cheering section going on right there!

Although, we didn't win this game all the kids did really good for being there first game, and some of them their first time playing at all. They certainly did an awesome job!

Good Job TEAM!!! What better way to celebrate than to have a good old popicle! Ummm.... this is good!
