Baseball Season - Week 2 Wrap-up

The VALL AA Raptors began the week 2-0, and ended the week 4-0! We have played all of the teams in our division, except for one (which we face off against tonight). The boys are really getting used to the pitching machine, and we are seeing fewer strike outs with each game. The defense is getting better slowly, but it is something we will be focusing on during our next practice

Game #3 was played Tuesday night under gorgeous conditions against the River Cats. We had a heck of an offensive and defensive performance, shutting them out 20-0. Le' ouch. I felt bad that the other team didn't score any runs, however I can't tell my players to not try and make plays.

Game #4 was Saturday morning at 10:00 AM, and we found ourselves opposing the River dogs. I know the manager and one coach of the River Dogs very well, as both had kids on my T-ball team 2 years ago, and the manager's son and my son have played on the same soccer team for several years. Anyhow, the game featured good offense from our team, with lackluster defense. The final score was Riverdogs 7, Raptors 16.

We should be starting kid-pitch sometime in the very near future. At that point in the season, things can change drastically. If you have a couple of players that can throw the ball over the plate, then you should do well. We'll see what shakes out over the next couple of weeks.

Score cards for both games are here:
