All-Star Game
 

Home Up


 

    Drew was selected as one of three players to represent his team, Ramsey Built Construction, in the Coach Pitch All-Star game on July 7th. He and a couple of his teammates were paired up with the players from three other coach pitch teams, to compete against the All-Stars from the remaining four teams.

    Drew didn't have his best game today from the batters box, going 0-3 with three strikeouts. He certainly wasn't used to the pitching, as he has only hit balls from his coach throughout the entire season. It would have been nice to have each kid hit off his own coach, but that isn't the way it is done... While in the field tonight, he played catcher, two outfield positions, and second base. He didn't really see any action come his way, aside from catching a few overthrown baseballs.

    Despite the fact that his team lost the game 15-11 (or 13-11 - apparently there was debate about one of the scoring plays), it was a fantastic evening for Drew. He got to play in his first All-Star game alongside two of his teammates and friends, and has something to work for next season as well. Considering that he was amongst the youngest players in the game today, I think he did great, and both Tara & I are very proud of him!
