It's baseball playoff time in our household and I'm afraid that my competitive nature is coming out!!! I have a 7 year old and the entire season is devoted to learning the game and being good sports, etc.
We never keep score.
There are no "losers".....until playoffs. It's now double elimination.
First game was last night. We played a team that we could easily beat.
All of a sudden we find ourselves down by 6!!! We are bobbling the ball, over throwing the base and can't get a hit to save us. What!!??
I found myself more nervous that my son was up to bat than if it were me!!! On top of being behind we have dark clouds rolling in. It's the bottom of the 5th and we are down 13 to 10. We get a base hit, a double, another base hit and before you know it we pull ahead 14-13!!!! First strike of lightening was seen and the game was called!!! WOOT WOOT!!!! We advance to the winners bracket on Wednesday!!
