Four in a row...

Kevin's 8 year old all-star team has done REALLY well this summer. Last weekend they won their 4th tournament in a row. Technically they are undefeated, but after last Saturdays pool play, they do have a tie on their record now. Since it was pool play, games were called at the time limit.

Another different rule for this tournament was that they did NOT have a run rule. It was nice not stopping after 5 or 7 runs. At first. But when we were scoring 18 runs in one inning, we felt really bad for the other team. Our boys were hitting like crazy! Finally our coaches would only allow our boys to go one base a time no matter what. Toward the end of the game with a score of 28-3, we had two outs. We were going one base at a time. We still kept scoring...until the score was 40-3 and they called the game.
Have you ever seen a Little League score of 40-3???
That win put us in the championship and we carried home hardware.
And went to DQ with the team to celebrate.
This weekend we are playing in a tournament "down the road" in the next county. I hope the boys aren't too cocky after last weekend and that they can still bring home hardware.
Have a great weekend!

I haven't ever seen that crazy of a score! Hopefully their next tournament games are a little more exciting :)
