Utah Firecracker Baseball Tournament 2010
This was our very first Baseball tournament with Chase’s team - Spanish Fork Angels. (I inserted the site Russ did for them – the kids LOVE it. He does an amazing job)
They played awesome! We won our first two games on Thursday in Orem. Then went to Park City to finish up on Friday and Saturday. Saturday we were a little slow and lost the first game and the second game by 1. At this point, we still had a chance playing in the finals if all the stars would align just right – they didn’t.
I do have one thing to say about Russ – he is an amazing coach. Even though he was just filling in with these kids during this tournament, he has such a positive affect on all the kids. I was trying to figure it out the other day and he give 15 – 20 hours a week to 3 teams and none of the kids hate him. LOL He really looks forward to it and I think it helps him as much as he helps these kids.
Anyways, we ended up staying and making a weekend out it. My kids have never to Park city in the summer to see what is there. The kids wanted to do the Alpine Slide and I stayed back with Kenz and she rode the rides at the bottom. Colten and I made a trip up Main Street. He was not to impressed with all the Art Gallery’s and “girly” stores. LOL He isn’t much of a shopper.
Kenz said it was her favorite ball game ever! Then I found out that she really just likes to stay in the hotel and swim. It wasn’t the games she liked. Poor thing – she already tells me that she wants to be the pitcher on her team.
