Game Ball!

It's been a sad week for our Indian family. One of the boys on the 11-12 yr old team was hit by a car and passed away last week. It's been an emotional week for all of us. Conor was a joy and everyone had the most wonderful things to say about him and his family. His mom Bernie welcomed me into the Indians family opening weekend and we chatted about how our boys both shared the #23. I honestly can't even put into words how heart broken I feel for them. Please keep the B family in yours prayers.

So Monday was the first Indians game played since we lost Conor. The boys did great and Jackson had an awesome game! At the end of the game when Coach Chuck gave to the game ball. Jackson got it! He hit off his pitches both times (so he didn't have to use the tee) and caught a ball when he was playing third base. :) He was so proud!

Go Jackson! Woo Hoo.
