NTX Eagles win the Labor Day Classic Tournament

Bobby's new team, the NTX Eagles, played in the Labor Day Classic Tournament this past weekend.  There were 18 teams in their age division.  On Saturday, the boys played against the Texans.  Bobby got 3 at bats and got a single, double and triple.  He scored once and was left stranded twice.  Bobby also made 3 outs.  The Eagles won 17 to 3.  The second game was against the NTX Fury.  Bobby batted three times and got two singles and a double.  Not too many balls came Bobby's way but he did make an out.  Eagles won 18 to 3.  On Sunday, the boys played Team X-Treme.  Bobby got two singles and scored twice.  He also made 3 outs.  Next was the semi-final game against the Rattlers.  Bobby hit a pop-fly that resulted in 2 runs batted in.  He also made 2 outs.  The Championship game was against the Oklahoma Mudcats.  The Mudcats were great hitters and a great defensive team as well.  Bobby got 2 singles and was left on the bag both times.  He also made 2 outs.  The Eagles won the game 7 to 2.  I am so proud of this team and how hard they worked together.  What a way to start off the fall baseball season!

I'm a week late on this blog post, but here is a picture of the kids on their first day back to school.  Jenna is now in 6th grade and attending middle school.  Carissa is in 5th grade and Bobby is in 2nd grade.
