Jack Baseball - Summer 2015

Jack played on his first baseball team this summer.  Most of the boys from his soccer team played together, with a few other new kids to round out the team. The assistant soccer coach, Coach Jared, agreed to coach baseball too.  They had a blast!!  They started out with practices about a month before the season started, and Jack was getting a little bored, but by the time games started, he loved it!  It was coach pitch and through the O'Fallon Community Athletic Club (OCAC).
First game!!

Making an out at home!

 Jack played really great.  He got a ton of extra base hits (even some triples!) and played great in the field too.  He made quite a few outs.  The highlight was one game where he was playing 3rd base and caught back-to-back pop flies!  We were impressed!  Of course, the bases were loaded in both cases and he probably could've gotten a double or triple play on the runners who all took off, but that's a lesson for another day.  Catching the ball was good enough!!

Jack's #1 Fan!

 They ended the season undefeated, with one tie.  We were very proud of these boys!!
