Recap: Tinley Park Memorial Day Tournament

We kick start the tournament playing the Illinois Sparks – Kubin and it was a close game…neck and neck until the end.  After 6 innings it was tied so we had to go to a “sudden death” type of thing (some California Rule thing…???) Anywho…we ended up winning that and the final score was 10-8!  Thank goodness…that was a close one!

I took pictures of Scott but they were all blurry so I am not even going to bother with those, but I do have a really cute picture of Gianna and her friend Andrew watching the game…or playing I should say…in a tree!

My mind was a little preoccupied because Alyssa was graduating from 8th grade the same week as this tournament so I am not sure what pictures are what.  Not only that but I was using two different cameras so I think some Alyssa uploaded to her laptop and then deleted from the SD card.  I do have some so if I ever get them onto my Mac, I’ll add them…I had a really good one of Connor Gill (I think) getting ready to slide into home, but sadly he was out. Boo….but, I’ll post what I can from championship day.   Ok, so I’ll get back to the scores… we played Tinley Park Bobcats and won 6-5, we played the Plainfield Edge – Fritz and won, 12-2, then we played the Tinley Park Bobcats – Leconte and won 12-0, and lastly, the St. Joe’s Bombers.

Here are the boys waiting to play their championship game.

Here goes the championship game… I love the concentration on his face, it’s priceless!

Then the win…we won, beat St. Joe’s 10-0.

The team trophy is half the size of Scott, lol!

Now we move on to an out of State tournament…we are headed to IOWA!  WOOHOO!!  See you all next week!
