Travel Sports World Series - Opening Day

Today was the 1st day of the World Series for Bobby's baseball team, the Dallas Stars.  We arrived at Oak Grove Park in Grapevine, Texas at 9 am.  It was already in the high 80s when we got there.  The boys traded pins with the other teams, competed in skill drills (fastest man, around the horn, home run derby and accuracy throw).  Bobby's teammate, Brock, won the fastest man competition for the 8u division.  At 12:30 the opening ceremonies started and all teams were introduced and walked the bases.  After the opening ceremonies, we ate lunch with 3 of the families and then headed home.  My three and Brock had some fun in the pool jumping and trying to catch a ball.  The swim time was awesome since were baked for half the day in 107 degree heat!!  The games begin tomorrow and I'm hoping the odds are ever in our favor!
