Baseball Tournament

Today was Dylan's baseball division's Round Robin Tournament.

Those two games were quite possibly the hottest, most humid games we've ever sat through.  We were all miserable just sitting there under the blazing sun, so I really felt for the players!

Dylan had two games, back to back.  As the first game neared an end, it was evident that I had to get the girls out of the sun.  The baby, especially, looked miserable.

Grant's mom called us back, and told us to bring the girls to her house.  I loaded the girls into the car and drove them to her house, just a few minutes away.

Just over an hour outside...

...gave new meaning to heat exhaustion.

I returned to the field, and Grant and I watched Dylan play his second game.  He played hard, despite the heat, hitting hard and scoring runs.  It was nice watching him play, without distraction.

Dylan's team won the second game, so the boys were very happy!  They were filthy, hot, sweaty, and grinning as they left the field!

Honestly?  I think they were grinning because they were relieved they could finally get out of the heat!!!

I have to admit, I was thrilled to get into the car and crank up the AC!

I was really proud of how well Dylan played today!  He stuck with it, despite the suffocating heat.  Go, Mars Black!

  3. Yes, this weekend has been HOT. I'm glad Dylan had a great time and scored some runs, but oh yes, I'm sure that smile says he's happy to get out of the heat too! What a great mom you are to stay cheering for the entire game. You took some beautiful pictures that really captured the moment.

  6. Way to go, Dylan! It's hot here too so I can only imagine being out there with little ones for several hours. Glad D and his team had a great game!

  8. He reminds me of my husband's cousin who excelled at ball from a very young age and was a sought-after college player now at Temple on a scholarship. Go Dylan!!! If he's going to go professional, this heat is good practice!
