My Little All Star

I have never been more proud of my little boy.  Hunter was selected as an Alternate for the All Stars team, he knew from the beginning that meant he would only play if someone was not there.  All Stars is for 7 & 8 year olds and since he was 6 he was just happy that he was picked.  In his eyes, he was part of the team no matter what, he was happy to sit in the bleachers with his uniform on and cheer for his team.  He would yell "Go All Stars", he would cheer each player on at bat - it really amazed me.  He went to all practices, participated in scrimmages, waited each night to see if he would play, but was never disappointed when he didn't, and after each game he would tell his teammates they did a great job!!!

Yesterday, Shane was called and told Hunter would be playing last night, one player could not play.  Hunter was in and he was so excited, he and hubby practiced batting and catching before we left for the big game.  He had his uniform, Dixie Youth Baseball patch sewed on, and he was ready to play.  During the game he was in Outfield, and he stopped/chase/threw 4 balls and I was beaming from ear to ear - "That's my baby!"
BROTHERLY LOVE - nothing better!

We didn't win that game but it was a great night anyway!!

He hath made His wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
Psalm 111:4

Oldest Son was an alternate for all stars when he was 11. It was a good experience, but he didn't get to play.
Glad he had a good experience (and got to play!)!
