Yesterday was Brad’s first baseball game of the season! He plays for the Braves in a local wooden bat league, the Jacksonville MABL. Erin, Bobby, and I went out to watch. Brad started off the season with a homerun blast to right field in his very first at bat! Unfortunately, we were running a wee bit late and Bobby was the only one who witnessed it… apparently Erin and I are “old ladies” and take too long to get out of the car. Brad finished the day 2 for 4 with 5 RBIs and his team won 15-2!!!
Somewhere around the 6th inning Bobby decided to take a nap
Two bats were broken completely in half during the game… one huge spear came flying over the fence into the stands. This is what was left in the batter’s hand.
Next time I am going to get on the inside of the fence and take some pictures… it was kind of annoying to shoot through the fence the entire game… although it was much safer considering the wooden javelins that were rocketing around yesterday.
