Kyle Cares Baseball Tournament
Bobby's team, the Dallas Stars, participated in the Kyle Cares Baseball Tournament in Waxahachie, Texas this weekend. This tournament is held every year in remembrance of a little boy who passed away due to an amoeba he contracted while swimming. Please read his story at www.kylecares.com. On Saturday, they played the Forney Rangers. Bobby made 4 outs defensively but struggled with his batting. The Stars won 13 to 1. The second game was against the Rampage. Bobby scored 3 runs and made 2 outs. The Stars beat the Rampage 24 to 5. We were seed #1 going into Sunday's brackets. Our first game was against the Forney Fire and Bobby made 9 outs and was left on the bag in one inning. Stars went home with the win with a final score of 8 to 3. The semi-final game was against the Dallas Redhawks. Bobby made 4 outs, scored once and was put out at 3rd once. Stars came out ahead with a score of 15 to 5. The championship game was a 8pm Sunday evening and it was finally cool enough to enjoy the game and not feel like you were melting (it was the first weekend of triple digit temperatures in North Texas). The Stars played against the Clubs. Bobby made 3 outs and had a couple of good hits that were caught. Unfortunately, the boys fell short and lost 15 to 8. It was very disappointing to get so far and play hard and lose. They earned the 2nd place trophy with hard work. Way to go, Stars!!!
