South Sutter Baseball Opening Day 2009
It was a beautiful day out at the ballpark on Saturday. We couldn't have asked for better weather. Everything went well. Mr. G, the Gecko from the local minor league team The Yuba Sutter Gold Sox threw out the first pitch and Max was the catcher, and what a great catch he made. We have approximately 280 kids in the league this year, the infield was full. Emily had a game at 10:30, so right after the ceremonies we started her game. Its quite a team she's on. Ed is helping coach her team and I think it helped to have him there. Especially when she fell running after the ball and banged her already banged up knee. She did really well, got a hit and made it to first base. I think it will be a great year for her. The Bandits won their first game, way to go Bandits. Max's team had their game right after Emily's. He caught the whole game. What a difference a year makes. He was much more aggressive and stayed on top of the ball. Uncle Tracy was the ump for his game, and he has been many times so I think Max is pretty comfortable with him standing directly behind him. Ed is the coach for Max's team and he did a pretty good job I might say myself. Unfortunately the Diamondbacks lost their game but they gave it their all. All in all it was a great first day of games.
