At the Ballpark
We had our first day of play at the ballpark yesterday and Ashley Kate was the Tarheels biggest fan. Our good friends gave Ash a t-shirt for her birthday that said "I love my Tarheels" with the #7 printed on it. We loved it and she proudly wore it in support of our favorite catcher #7, Blake Adams(of course the t-shirt is pink!)
The Tarheels did a great job yesterday. Blake pitched the first game and we were so proud of him. We came out on top with a score of 20-5 in that one. During the second game Blake caught(which is his favorite position). Our Tarheels battled back in the 4th inning from a score of 8-0 to tie the game at 8-8. In the next inning we took the lead 9-8 only to end up losing when the home team had last bat and came out on top 10-9. Overall the Tarheels start this morning 23rd of 60. We made it into the Division 1 brakett and now we will have to play our "A" game to stay in it. I think the boys are up to the challenge. This morning we face the Oklahoma Stixx who are ranked number 10. The majority of the other teams in our brakett are out of California. We definitely have some good baseball to play.
Ash is loving the cool weather and the scenic views. It is so beautiful here in Steamboat, CO. You couldn't think of a better combination. Mountains and Baseball and a happy baby. We are loving it. Take care and we will get some pictures posted this evening. Have a great day! Trish
