Finally, after months and months of planning and meetings and tryouts and drafts and paperwork and hassles, the Spring baseball season is finally upon us.
Michael had his first game last night, before Opening Day on Saturday. He is a member of the Major division Marlins. As a 10-year-old, he is only one of a few his age in the division. As its worked out, the team that drafted him is giving him a lot of great opportunities to play pitcher and first base. The team overall is probably going to struggle a bit this season.
But, we won our first game last night - 3-2. Michael pitched 5 innings and only gave up 2 hits and 1 run. He had a pretty good outing for their first game!
And just for comparison, I thought I'd share a photo from one of his first Single A games pitching as a little 7-year-old on the Pirates
