Last night we got a glimpse of what could be our future. The 12 Year Old Lamar American Little League played last night on ESPN2 for the Southwest regional championship in Waco. They played a team from Lake Charles, LA. Unfortunately, Lake Charles won in an extra innings game 7-6 and will head to Williamsport, PA for the Little League World Series.
Lamar is our school district and many of these kids are our neighbors or they are the older team to our neighbors younger kids. It was amazing how professional they looked! It was like a real MLB game with little people. These kids were throwing balls at 70 mph! Of course the stands were full of parents rooting their kids on.
This could be my future. Cavett starts soccer in the fall. I'm glad I am growing to "like" sports.
BTW, there is a reason why I haven't posted or commented much this week. More on that tomorrow.
