I drove to to Morgantown for the opening weekend of Little League season. It was a great day to drive with clear skies and relatively light traffic. I stopped at the Welcome Center just into Pennsylvania where I saw what Spring likes here: brown vineyards and ice on Lake Erie. By the time I got to Morgantown, I saw trees in bloom including redbuds and green grass. Spring is alive and well and coming to Upstate New York.
Brock successfully stealing second to spark a last inning rally
We went to Brock's opening game which saw his team stage a last inning rally that brought them within a run of tying a game which they lost 14-13. Brock went one for three with a double and a run scored. He played in the out field and make several good plays including astute backup of missed throws to third base.
Brendan captured a photo of a father putting a radar gun on his son who was pitching for the other team. This sums up a lot of what is wrong with youth athletics: over involvement of parents in what should be a kid's game!
